Nearly four decades later, Mose Rison is back where his college football career began.

A freshman on Central Michigan's 1974 Division II national championship team, Rison returned to Mount Pleasant this spring for his second stint as the Chippewas' receivers coach.

"It's outstanding, rewarding, exciting, all of those feelings, to be back here," Rison said. "To be back at my school, where I played, I can't tell you how excited I am to be back."

Rison coached CMU's receivers from 1981-88, launching a coaching career that has included a trip to the Rose Bowl with Stanford, two seasons with the NFL's New York Jets and a stint as the head coach at North Carolina Central.

It all began in Mount Pleasant, however. A native of Flint, Rison earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees from CMU, still ranks 10th in school history with 2,838 career rushing yards and garnered team MVP and All-Mid-American Conference first-team accolades as a senior in 1977.
