Darren Comeaux grew up in California playing basketball and running track didn't start playing football until he was in high school. Once out of high school Darren attended Mesa Community College and eventually went to Arizona State University.

When he was on the San Francisco 49ers he suffered a knee injury which left him on injury reserve.

Darren led the Seahawks in tackles consecutively and retired after spending 10 years in the league. He finished his NFL career in 1991, in 10 seasons he had over 100 tackles, 3½ sacks, 3 interceptions and he even returned 1 kickoff.
