Jerheme Wayne Urban (born November 26, 1980) is an American football coach and former player. He is the head football coach at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. Urban played professionally as a wide receiver in the National Football League (NFL) from 2003 to 2011 with the Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys, Arizona Cardinals, and Kansas City Chiefs.

Playing career[edit]

Urbane was signed as an undrafted free agent from Trinity by the Seattle Seahawks and served as a reserve wide receiver during his years there. His 2005 season was cut short by a re-aggravated left foot stress fracture, and he was not re-signed. He was signed by the Cowboys in 2006 and joined their practice squad, and was cut from the team's active roster before the start of the 2007 season.[1] The Arizona Cardinals signed him to their active roster from the waiver wire on September 2, 2007.[2] He caught a then career-high 22 passes in 2007, including two touchdowns. Urban set new career marks in 2008 with 34 catches for 448 yards and four touchdowns. He also contributed 11 tackles on special teams and completed his first pass in the NFL. He was then signed from free agency to the Chiefs roster on March 11, 2010.

Urban was considered by many to be the ultimate team player. Seattle Post-Intelligencer sportswriter Jim Moore wrote of Urban's tenure with the Seahawks that he "...wasn't a good soldier, he was a great one."[3] Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck said of Urban, "Whatever the definition of a Seahawk is, he's it."[3] ESPN's Bill Williamson wrote, "This is an under-the-radar player who always seems to make coaches fall in love with him."[4]

Coaching career[edit]

Urban served as an assistant coach at Trinity for two seasons. In 2013, Urban was offensive coordinator, and the previous year he mentored the defensive backs. Urban was the Tigers head football coach on November 21, 2013.
