In his first season, Addae mentored Second-Team all-BIG EAST selection Isaiah Pead who rushed for 1,029 yards while leading the conference in yards per attempt (6.6), a mark that ranked him in the Top-10 nationally among running backs. Pead, who averaged 93.6 yards per game, was UC's first 1,000-yard rusher in almost a decade and only the Bearcats' seventh all-time.
John Goebel was selected as the 2010 American Eagle Outfitters BIG EAST Football Scholar-Athlete of the Year. He is the first UC football player to win the award, which is selected by the league's Academic Affairs Committee and is presented on the basis of academic credentials and athletic performance.
In 2010, the Bearcats led the BIG EAST in scoring offense (27.1 ppg), total offense (417.3 ypg), passing offense (260.7 ypg), first downs (21.9 pg), third-down conversions (45.6 pct.), and touchdown passes (27).
Addae has also been recognized by Rivals.com as one of the top-10 recruiters in the BIG EAST Conference in 2010-11.
Addae previously served as UC's director of player development. In that role, Addae worked directly with UC's student-athletes, providing guidance and counsel while ensuring they adhered to the seven core principles of Coach Jones' program, regarding intellectual, social, spiritual, physical, and skill development.
He also managed many of UC's off-the-field responsibilities including overseeing the highly-successful Cats In The Community program.
He came to UC after two seasons as a defensive graduate assistant at the University of Michigan working with the Wolverines' defensive secondary and scout team offense.
Addae was a graduate assistant in the football video department at West Virginia University in 2007. Prior to joining the Mountaineers staff, he taught English at Riverview High School.
He was a four-year starter and two-time captain at West Virginia. He was a finalist for the 2005 Ronnie Lott Trophy and was named to the watch list for the Jim Thorpe Award that same season. A three-time all-BIG EAST performer, Addae received first-team accolades his final two seasons (2004-05) after garnering second team honors as a sophomore (2002).
A native of Tampa, Fla., Addae signed a free agent contract with his hometown Tampa Bay Buccaneers and spent the end of the season with the Indianapolis Colts. He was selected for the Senior Bowl in 2005 and participated in the NFL Combine.
