49ers running back Glen Coffee unexpectedly retired today. Coffee, the team's third-round pick in 2009, had been absent from practice without an injury on Thursday and Friday.
Saturday update: The Sacramento Bee has an exclusive interview with Coffee (linked) where he talks about his decision to leave football in order to pursue his degree. The interview doesn't say it, but it seems clear from various reports that he plans on becoming a minister. He seems like a very religious guy and sounds very comfortable with his decision.
