Jerry Glanville to join XFL Tampa Bay as Defensive Coordinator

Post by SamTheRam28 » Mon Apr 01, 2019 4:46 pm

Former NFL head coach and Hamilton Tiger-Cats defensive coordinator Jerry Glanville is set to join Marc Trestman as Defensive Coordinator of the upcoming Tampa Bay franchise.

Glanville’s year with the Ticats was his first season back coaching since he was at the NCAA level as head coach at Portland State University from 2007 to 2009 and the Vikings were 9-24 while he was at the helm. The Perrysburg, Ohio native is best known for his time as an NFL head coach with the Houston Oilers and Atlanta Falcons. He amassed a 63-73 career win-loss record while going 3-4 over four playoff appearances.

This is the second hire of the day for Trestman. Earlier today we revealed that Redblacks Offensive Coordinator, Jaime Elizondo would also be joining the Tampa Bay franchise as the Assistant Coach. So far, it looks like Trestman is bringing some of his friend from the CFL. We’ll keep you updated if any more information comes in.

This news is hard to trust right now because of the date. Glanville is someone that I have thought about in the back of my mind for Houston.

If Glanville has jumped, the June Jones watch has to be officially on.

Trestman has tapped into the coaching talent he knows in the CFL.

This is possibly an April Fools Joke, so lets just wait and see tomorrow.

Is this still a thing, now that we've made it to 4/2?

I think it's real. Wonder if it is a good decision when people thought it was a joke.

I think it's a fine hire, I only thought it was potentially a joke because I don't trust any news on 4/1.

I think it'd be a great hire. I wouldn't have liked him as a HC, but he's done well in the CFL. Players love him, from what I understand.
