COACHING
Warren Belin's first year as Carolina's linebackers coach in 2011 was filled with challenges as injuries hit the position hard, losing starters Jon Beason and Thomas Davis in the first two games. Attrition continued at the position throughout the season as the Panthers started eight different linebackers. But James Anderson remained a constant and thrived, starting all 16 games and setting a team record with 174 tackles under Belin's tutelage.

Belin joined the Panthers after gaining 20 years of experience as a college coach. The veteran assistant came to Carolina following a one-year stint at Georgia and an eight-year tenure at Vanderbilt.

Working with the inside linebackers in his only season at Georgia in 2010, Belin mentored linebacker Akeem Dent, who led the team and ranked second in the Southeastern Conference with 126 tackles. Dent, an All-SEC second-team choice, was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Additionally, Belin handled the Bulldogs' kickoff coverage unit, which ranked first in the conference.

Before moving to Georgia, Belin spent eight seasons as linebackers coach at Vanderbilt from 2002-09. In addition, he served as the team's recruiting coordinator during his last two years and special teams coordinator from 2006-07. While with the Commodores, Belin produced several future NFL player as well as numerous All-SEC selections, including Hunter Hillenmeyer, Jonathan Goff and Marcus Buggs.

From 1997-2001, Belin coached linebackers at Southern Methodist. In each of Belin's five seasons with the Mustangs, at least one member of his linebacking corps captured All-Western Athletic Conference recognition. He also tutored linebackers at Cornell in 1991 and 1993-94 and at East Tennessee State in 1992 prior to overseeing the defensive line at William & Mary in 1995 and linebackers in 1996.

PLAYING AND PERSONAL
A three-year starter at linebacker and four-year letterman for Wake Forest from 1987-90, Belin graduated cum laude with a degree in health and sports science. He is a native of Marshville, N.C. and attended Forest Hills High School. Last name is pronounced Bee-lynn.
