Allen Suber enters his second year as the wide receivers coach and pro liaison at the University of Massachusetts after spending two years at Bethune-Cookman in a similar capacity. Along with his college coaching experience at his alma mater, Suber played three seasons in the National Football League and NFL Europe before beginning his coaching career.

During his first season in Amherst, five Minutemen totaled 200 or more receiving yards on the year, including Deion Walker's 667-yard, three touchdown campaign. With guidance from Suber, Walker improved his receiving totals during MAC competition to finish with the fifth-most yards throughout the MAC during league play. Alan Williams also totaled career numbers under Suber's tutelage in 2012, securing 42 passes for 438 yards, with four going for TDs.

At Bethune-Cookman, Suber spent two seasons as the wide receivers coach under Brian Jenkins. During the early months of 2011, Suber was promoted by Jenkins to the role of Recruiting Coordinator. In his time coaching the Wildcats, he oversaw a group that helped to make B-CU among one of the top offensive teams in the nation, with wide receivers hauling in 146 passes for 2,191 yards, as the unit was a major contributing factor in returning a MEAC Championship trophy to B-CU for the first time since Suber was in the backfield.

"Suberman" led one of the greatest eras of B-CU from 1999-2003, including the 2002 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Championship team that finished 11-2, the program's first and second appearances in the NCAA I-AA playoffs, and consecutive victories over Florida A&M, featuring the 2003 triumph where Suber rallied the Wildcats from a 28-10 halftime deficit and hit Eric Weems, now with the Chicago Bears, for a late TD in a thrilling 39-35 victory.

He was the 2003 MEAC Offensive Player of the Year and a finalist for the Walter Payton Award. Suber still holds two Wildcat career rushing records for yards (2,897) and touchdowns (39). Additionally, he was a two-time All-American - earning the accolades as a junior (2002) and senior (2003).

Suber was on the rosters of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Houston Texas before being allocated to the Berlin Thunder of NFL Europe.

His first coaching opportunity came in 2006 when he oversaw B-CU quarterbacks in spring drills. He also participated in a 2007 scouting internship with the Jaguars.

As an offensive coordinator for Treasure Coast High School, Suber helped a young program coming off a 3-17 record its first two seasons into a squad that won its district and made its first state playoff appearance.
