Norvell described Coleman as a “special person” to coach.

“He’s a special person. And I'm just so glad the world is now getting to see who I got to coach every single day. Keon – he's a great player. You sit there and you watch him, he's a human highlight,” said Norvell. "He has a great, great catch radius, a very, dynamic player that's going to continue to grow and I'm excited about what his future is going to be in the NFL."

Furthermore, Norvell was extremely complimentary of Keon Coleman’s character.

“It's his personality. You know, he really cares so much about others and what you see and what the world is getting to know in regards to him is just, that’s his heart. And he's got a great spirit. One of the smartest young men I've ever been around in regards to all things when it comes to life. But just really excited about him. You know, I think the Bills got a great young man to come into their program and he's going to be somebody that's going to grow and I think accomplish great things.”
