Marty Schottenheimer Wins First Professional Championship as Coach of Virginia Destroyers

Marty Schottenheimer finally got his ring.

Granted, it came 24 years after John Elway's drive, 23 years after Earnest Byner fumbled, six years after Nate Kaeding missed in overtime, and four years after Marlon McCree coughed up a win in the fourth quarter, but still.

Schottenheimer, best known as the NFL coach with the most victories to never reach the Super Bowl, won his first professional coaching title on Friday night as his Virginia Destroyers captured the UFL championship with a 17-3 victory over the Las Vegas Locomotives.

Aaron Rouse led the way defensively for the Destroyers, picking off three passes and returning one for a 46 yard touchdown.
