USFL Head Coaches

When the USFL starts off on April 16, the Head Coaches signed by the league’s 8 teams are a nice blend of notable names and accomplished coaches. Michigan’s Jeff Fisher is probably the most well known of the group and Philadelphia’s Bart Andrus, who has an unconventional resume, is probably the most obscure. Fisher, coupled with 1st overall QB Shea Patterson have been installed by oddsmakers as the favorites to win the league (+325), which would probably bode well for Fisher being presumed as the best coach in the league. The New Orleans Breakers (+650) with Larry Fedora face the longest odds of the 8 teams.

  • Jeff Fisher, Michigan Panthers (+325) 173-165-1 (22 yrs) in the NFL, 11-5 in the NFL Playoffs
  • Todd Haley, Tampa Bay Bandits (+450) 19-26 (3 yrs) in the NFL, 0-1 NFL playoffs
  • Bart Andrus, Philadelphia Stars (+500) career spans many collegiate and professional leagues. Won 2 world bowls (Amsterdam Admirals & Rhein Fire), former NFL Europe Coach of the Year
  • Mike Riley, New Jersey Generals (+550) 112-99 in 17 years of College Football (Oregon State & Nebraska)
  • Skip Holtz, Birmingham Stallions (+600) 118-98 as a College Football Head Coach (East Carolina, South Florida, and Louisiana Tech)
  • Kevin Sumlin, Houston Gamblers (+600) 95-63 in 13 years as a College Football Head Coach (Houston, Texas A & M, and Arizona)
  • Kirby Wilson, Pittsburgh Maulers (+600) 1st Head Coaching jobs, 23 seasons as an NFL assistant & 7 as a Division 1 assistant.
  • Larry Fedora, New Orleans Breakers (+650) 79-62 in 11 years as a College Football Head Coach (Southern Mississippi & North Carolina)
