Marty Schottenheimer, former Redskins coach and pioneer of Martyball, may be about to pick up a whistle again.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that, after Jerry Glanville signed on to coach the Hartford Colonials over the weekend, Schottenheimer may be the next to sign on with the five-team fall league. The Virginia team, the Destroyers, former was the Florida Tuskers.
Schottenheimer, 67, has not coached since he was fired after a 14-2 season in 2006 by the San Diego Chargers. He is sixth on the all-time winning list in the NFL with a 200-126-1 record and coached the Redskins in 2001. Doug Williams formerly was the Destroyers’ GM; he was named coach at Grambling last month.
