Longtime CFL assistant coach Jeff Reinebold has been named the quarterback and wide receivers coach of Major League Football’s Alabama Airborne.

Reinebold was hired to serve as the special teams coordinator with the Montreal Alouettes in January 2022 after choosing not to return to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He never reported to Montreal and officially departed the team in May due to what the Als called “personal matters.”

The native of South Bend, Ind. has an extensive CFL résumé featuring stints with the B.C. Lions, Las Vegas Posse, Edmonton Elks, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Montreal Alouettes, and Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He was Winnipeg’s head coach for two seasons (1997-1998) and produced a 7-29 win-loss record, missing the playoffs in both years.

The Airborne’s head coach is Jerry Glanville, who served on Hamilton’s coaching staff alongside Reinebold in 2018. The 80-year-old most notably served as the head coach of the Houston Oilers (1985-1989) and Atlanta Falcons (1990-1993) but has since coached in the NCAA, CFL, XFL, and TSL.

Major League Football was founded in 2014 and is finally set to field its first regular season this year. Alabama is one of the league’s four teams alongside the Arkansas Attack, Ohio Force, and Virginia Armada.
