UFL announces coaching staff for upcoming season

In advance of the 2024 season, which begins on March 30, 2024, the United Football League has announced the coaching staffs and general managers for its eight teams. Formed by the merger of the XFL and USFL in 2024. The UFL has eight teams in Arlington (TX), Birmingham (AL), Detroit (MI), Houston (TX), San Antonio (TX), Memphis (TN), St. Louis (MO), and Washington D.C.

Former NFL coaches and players, as well as previous college coaches and players, occupy numerous positions on the UFL coaching staff and front office positions. It's amazing how much knowledge and experience these coaches each bring to the table, and it demonstrates the high level of talent the UFL intends to assemble in 2024.

With the merger of both leagues it should be very entertaining. I would definitely tune in. Here is a list of the teams' coaches and GMs.
