Entering his third season as defensive line coach, Anthony Caljean took over as the special teams coordinator prior to the 2016 campaign.
Before joining the Bears' staff as an assistant, Caljean spent time coaching at multiple levels of competition from high school to college, most recently serving as linebackers coach at Franklin and Marshall from 2013-14.
Before his time with the Diplomats, Caljean worked as a Graduate Assistant at Bethel University in McKenzie, Tennessee, where he coached the running backs. He helped coordinate the seventh-best rushing offense in all of NAIA and mentored all-conference running back Cordarius Mann, who finished second all-time in rushing yards in school history, and Freshman Offensive Player of the Year Raquis Hale. He also served as the strength and conditioning coordinator.
Caljean started his coaching career at Bernards High School in Bernardsville, New Jersey, where he served as both the defensive and special teams coordinator and as the strength and conditioning coach. During his time there the program won the 2011 Mid-State 39 Conference Championship, and the defense was ranked best in the conference.
Caljean attended Lafayette College, where he was an outstanding outside linebacker for the Leopards. He was a part of the 2006 Patriot League Championship squad and a member of the 2007 team that led all of Division I-FCS in total defense.
A 2010 graduate of Lafayette, Caljean received a Bachelor's of Arts in Government and Law.
