High School Career
Coates was a high school football player at Leroy High School in Leroy, Alabama. He recorded 57 catches for 1,170 yards and 14 touchdowns as a senior.
In March 2010, Coates committed to play collegiate football for the University of Southern Mississippi, but in July, he switched his pledge to Auburn University. Coates, a three-star recruit according to Rivals.com, was ranked as the nation's No. 71 wide receiver in 2011.
Due to a foot injury, Coates missed his whole rookie season at Auburn in 2011. Coates was a member of the wide receiver rotation in 2012 after missing the whole first season at Auburn. He made his debut against Clemson and against Louisiana-Monroe, catching his first career score, a 33-yard Hail Mary from quarterback Kiehl Frazier. He recorded six receptions for 114 yards and two touchdowns as a redshirt freshman.
Coates started 12 games as a sophomore and had 42 catches for 902 yards and seven touchdowns. He has 14 receptions for 30 yards or more, making him a big-play threat. He gained 102 receiving yards against SEC West opponent Arkansas, his third consecutive 100-yard game. He recorded four receptions for 61 yards in the 2014 BCS National Championship Game defeat to Florida State.
Coates collected 34 catches for 741 yards and four touchdowns as a junior in 2014. He concluded his career at Auburn with 1,757-lifetime receiving yards, 13 career touchdown catches, and seven career games with more than 100 yards receiving. He established a school record with 206 receiving yards, five receptions, and two scores in the Iron Bowl versus Alabama.
He was also invited to the Reese's Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine after recording four receptions in the Outback Bowl. Coaches, The Associated Press, and Phil Steele all chose Coates second-team All-SEC.
Coates revealed on December 12, 2014, that he has accepted his invitation to the 2014 Senior Bowl. NFL analyst Mel Kiper predicted him to be a first-round pick before the Senior Bowl. Coates was anticipated to be a late first or second-round choice by the majority of NFL draft pundits and scouts.
Coates' rapid cuts, outstanding speed, and huge, well-developed physique impressed NFL scouts at the Senior Bowl, and his potential makes him a probable future No. 1 wide receiver, according to evaluators.
Following a spectacular week of practice in which he made many highlight-reel receptions, Coates visited with Baltimore Ravens personnel. Coates had one reception for 13 yards in the Senior Bowl on January 25, 2014, but had to depart the game due to a groin injury.
Coates played a key role in the South's 20-10 victory over the North under Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley. He was invited to the NFL Combine and went through all of the necessary combine and positional workouts.
His bench press reps of 23 were the most among wide receivers. Coates, along with Greg Robinson, Dee Ford, Chris Davis, Tre Mason, Cody Parkey, Jay Prosch, Quan Bray, and nine other teammates, attended Auburn's pro day on March 3, 2014. For the scouts and team representatives in attendance, he just ran positional exercises.
The Steelers traded Coates and a 2019 seventh-round selection to the Cleveland Browns on September 2, 2017, in exchange for a 2018 sixth-round pick. With Martavis Bryant's return from suspension, JuJu Smith-selection Schuster's in the 2017 NFL Draft, and the growth of Eli Rogers in Coates' absence the previous season, Coates became expendable. For their final two receiving positions, the Pittsburgh Steelers went with veterans Darrius Heyward-Bey and Justin Hunter.
