Brad Bedell enters his first season with the NM State Football Program as the Aggies' offensive line coach.
Bedell spent one season at UC Davis in 2011 as the offensive line coach and run game coordinator. Bedell led an offensive line corps who helped the UC Davis offense rack up over 319 yards of total offense per game and nearly 100 yards of rushing per game. He guided lineman Sean Davies and center Ray Wilburn to Great West all-Conference first team honors.
Prior to UC Davis, Bedell coached at Northern Colorado where he served on the Bears' staff in 2010.
Bedell wrapped up his pro career for the Houston Texans in 2006, playing in nine games, and then decided to retire in June, 2009. His desire to coaching led him back to Colorado, where he was an All-American and earned two letters as an offensive guard for the 1998 and 1999 seasons.
He saw action in 40 National Football League games, including four starts, playing for the Cleveland Browns (2000-01), the Miami Dolphins (2003), the Green Bay Packers (2004-05) and Houston. He missed the 2002 season recovering from an injury.
At Colorado, he earned first team All-America honors from the Football Writer's Association of America as a senior in 1999, with the Associated Press selecting him to its second team, which also named him first-team All-Big 12. That season, he had 24 touchdown blocks and was in for 834 plays at guard and on special teams, the second most on the team. He received a medical redshirt for the 1997 season after a neck injury sidelined him following the second game of the season. He started 24 of 26 games in his CU career, grading out at 89 percent over his final two seasons. He was a third-team all-league performer as a junior.
Bedell played at Mt. San Antonio College in 1997, as he was a first-team JUCO All-American and was rated as the top junior college offensive lineman and the No. 4 overall junior college recruit in the nation in 1996. As a sophomore right offensive tackle at Mt. Sac he did not allow a sack all season and was called for just one penalty. As a freshman, Bedell earned all-conference honors. Mt. Sac was 8-2 his sophomore season and defeated Chaffey College in the Southern California Bowl. He is married to the former Jessica Tokarchick.
