Leon Lett graduates from college

Former Dallas Cowboys defensive end Leon Lett has completed 25 credits over the past three semesters at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.

Lett played his college ball at Emporia State in Kansas, but he never received his degree.
"And now," he said, the pride in his voice discernable from 1,000 miles away, "I'm walking. It's been a long time coming."
Andre Patterson, who coached Lett in 2000 in Dallas and is currently UNLV's head coach, connected Lett with an academic advisor at UNLV.

Patterson says that Lett "would be good at" coaching, but that "he couldn't do it without that piece of paper."

College graduate today. College coach tomorrow?
