Former Ticats defensive coordinator Jerry Glanville to be hired in XFL

Former NFL head coach and Hamilton Tiger-Cats defensive coordinator Jerry Glanville is set to join Marc Trestman in the XFL.

Glanville’s year with the Ticats was his first season back coaching since he was at the NCAA level as head coach at Portland State University from 2007 to 2009 and the Vikings were 9-24 while he was at the helm. The Perrysburg, Ohio native is best known for his time as an NFL head coach with the Houston Oilers and Atlanta Falcons. He amassed a 63-73 career win-loss record while going 3-4 over four playoff appearances.

Glanville will join former Ottawa Redblacks offensive coordinator Jaime Elizondo with the Tampa Bay XFL franchise.
