Although there might not be an NFL season in 2011, the UFL is pushing forward full steam ahead, and the Hartford Colonials just got significantly more interesting.
The Colonials announced Monday that they've added Jerry Glanville as head coach and general manager for the team, according to ESPN.
Glanville brings his nine years of NFL coaching experience to the UFL, taking the reins for a Hartford team that finished last season 3-5.
Following a rough tenure at Portland State, Glanville looks forward to this new beginning in Hartford, saying, "Over time, you learn what's important. You do what you're born to do. Preachers preach. Coaches coach."
The often-quotable coach has earned a reputation for his outspokenness, memorably stating that "If you're a pro coach, NFL stands for 'not for long.'"
