Cedric Cormier (pronounced cor-MEER) came from Miami (Ohio) University to take over the Rebel receiving corps. He spent the 2009 season coaching the RedHawk wide receivers after working the previous two seasons in the same capacity at Montana.
In Missoula, he coached future NFL wideout Marc Mariani, who in 2008 was a second team All-American with 1,308 receiving yards, 15 touchdowns and a school-record 2,265 all-purpose yards. Mariani was drafted in the sixth round by the Tennessee Titans and earned a spot in the NFL Pro Bowl as a rookie.
Prior to Montana, Cormier was an assistant coach at Baytown Lee (Texas) High School for two seasons after starting his coaching career at Channelview (Texas) High School in 2004. While at Channelview he coached future Chicago Bear wide receiver Johnny Knox. The Houston native was a four-year letterman as a receiver at Colorado from 1998-2001.
Cormier earned his bachelor's degree in communications from Colorado in 2002. He and his wife, Roshelle, have a son, Deon, and a daughter, Danielle.
