2023: Blue Bombers

Cole continued to increase his role with the Blue Bombers during his second season with the club. A valuable contributor on special teams — he had 14 special-teams tackles in 2023, ranking him fourth in that department — Cole also saw more snaps on defence. Over 26 regular season games with the Blue Bombers, Cole has recorded 20 special teams tackles, three defensive tackles, and three forced fumbles.

 On January 1, 2024 Cole signed a one-year extension to remain with the club.

2022: Blue Bombers

Cole was signed by the Blue Bombers on July 12, 2022 after a stint with the Edmonton Elks. He dressed for 11 regular-season games for the club as a designated import, plus the two playoff games, and finished the year with six special-teams tackles and one pass knock down.

College/Pro

Cole played two years with the Mississippi State Bulldogs, making 17 starts at safety over that time and tallying 78 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, three sacks, two interceptions, and four passes defended.
Cole was selected by the Minnesota Vikings in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Over the last two NFL seasons, he spent time with the Vikings, Miami Dolphins, and Carolina Panthers, dressing for two pre-season games in 2021.
