The Alliance of American Football League debuts next month, and Brad Childress will not be at the helm of the Atlanta franchise. The team announced in the early-morning hours of Wednesday that Kevin Coyle will succeed Childress. Coyle was the team’s defensive coordinator after a 17-year career as an NFL assistant.
“Coach Childress has stepped away from his role as head coach of The Atlanta Legends,” AAF head of football operations J.K. McKay said in a statement. “We are grateful for his leadership, contribution to building The Alliance, and wish him well in his next endeavor.”
