Brad Childress Resigns from Alliance of American Football Coaching Position

In April of 2018, the start-up pro pigskin league known as the Alliance of American Football (“AAF”) introduced Brad Childress as the head coach of their still in the womb, Atlanta-based franchise.

In January of 2019, one month prior to the AAF’s inaugural snap, the former fearless leader of the Minnesota Vikings abruptly resigned from his role with the recently conceived organization.

As for why he has decided to step away, according to multiple reports, it appears that the artist known as Chilly may have himself some bigger fish to fry.

Despite seeming like a lot longer, it has only been one NFL (regular) season since Childress, who was the Purple’s HC from 2006-2010, held the position of Kansas City’s spread game analyst/special projects coach.

In the event the 62 year-old does relocate to the NFL, as for where it will be, who the hell knows.

With that being said, one things for sure, despite initial rumors, he won’t be working under Kevin Stefanski in Cleveland:

Now, on those notes, let’s loop back to the AAF.

The proverbial football birth of the eight team league is slated for February 9th.

Barring some unforeseen circumstances between now and then, the AAF will arrive, as scheduled, on it’s due date.

AAF Teams

  • Arizona Hotshots
  • Atlanta Legends
  • Birmingham Iron
  • Memphis Express
  • Orlando Apollos
  • Salt Lake Stallions
  • San Antonio Commanders
  • San Diego Fleet

The league, whose co-founder Bill Polian serves as the Head of Football, has “multiple NFL personnel excited” over it’s “second chance mentality.” 

As you can see below, said excited group of NFL personnel includes the head coach of the Seahawks, Pete Carrol:

Carrol’s glass half full attitude towards the AAF is somewhat echoed by the general manager of the Lions, Bob Quinn:

In addition to the earlier mentioned Polian, other big names affiliated with the football start-up include Michael Vick (Atlanta Legends OC) and rodeo Jared Allen (Player Relations Executive).


As for the initial phase of this football experiment’s duration, according to the AAF’s schedule, we’re looking at a ten week process.
