Glanville to push for football team in Jackson
JACKSON — On Oct. 5, former NFL head coach Jerry Glanville will visit Jackson to meet with city officials and business leaders to discuss the potential for a Jackson-based United Football League expansion team to participate in the 2012 season.
Glanville, who was the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons (1986-1989) and Houston Oilers (1990-1993), performs an advisory role with the United Football League and is leading the league’s expansion initiative.
He will visit Jackson, Salt Lake City, Utah, and Chattanooga, Tenn., in the coming weeks to explore interest in those cities welcoming a UFL expansion team for the 2012 season. The ownership of the new team that joins the Las Vegas Locomotives, Omaha Nighthawks, Sacramento Mountain Lions and Virginia Destroyers in the UFL will have the opportunity to appoint Jerry Glanville as its head coach.
