    I recognize surprisingly few of these names. But it's entirely possible my brain is floating in space right now
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    Yeah, but there's an "Express" team, which is the name of the USFL team that Hugh Campbell coached.

    The AAF is destined to die. The NFL is the game in the USA.

    I hope the CFL doesn't go down with it.

    Not ready to start an XFL thread yet (perhaps next year), so I'll just post this here. XFL announced their eight franchises today. Interesting choices.

    Here's a rundown of which cities will be hosting games when the XFL kicks off again:

    City: Dallas
    Stadium: Globe Life Park in Arlington (Arlington, Texas)

    City: Houston
    Stadium: TDECU Stadium (Houston, Texas)

    City: Los Angeles
    Stadium: StubHub Center (Carson, California)

    City: New York
    Stadium: MetLife Stadium (East Rutherford, New Jersey)

    City: Seattle
    Stadium: CenturyLink Field (Seattle, Washington)

    City: St. Louis
    Stadium: The Dome at America's Center (St. Louis, Missouri)

    City: Tampa
    Stadium: Raymond James Stadium (Tampa, Florida)

    City: Washington, D.C.
    Stadium: Audi Field (Washington, D.C.)

    Oline coach, Jonathan Himebauch , has joined head coach Mike Riley with San Antonio of the AAF. Certainly doesn't stay in one place very long for a very highly regarded coach. Left the Eskimos to join the Argos where he had the asst. head coach title added to his Oline duties in 2015. Rejoined Toronto last year.

    The nomadic life of a positional coach in football.

    Similar to the salary breakdown in the CFL for players, where you have some QBs taking up 10% of the team's cap, other top-tier veterans, another 5%, and then many guys working at, or near, league minimum, there is a big differential between HC's, Coordinators and positional coaches, and far less stability for positional coaches who are often dealing with 1 year contracts - albeit, at least guaranteed, unlike the players.

    Michael Vick has also quit as OC for the Atlanta franchise... trouble brewing for the new league before the first kickoff?

    Rumours that Childress may be hired as a positional coach by the Packers may have been the reason he walked away (also hearing Cleveland as a possibility). If I hear more, I'll post it.
