Jagodzinki out as Nighthawks coach

We’ve learned something important via our various stories about the UFL.

Not many of you care about the UFL.

So we’re widening our strainer for UFL-related stories.  Here’s one that managed not to slide through.

The Omaha Nighthawks have fired coach Jeff Jagodzinski.  Replacing him will be Joe Moglia, the former TD Ameritrade CEO who served as a “life skills and leadership consultant” with the Nebraska Cornhuskers and who was hired to coach the Virginia expansion team in the UFL.

Jagodzinski, a one-time rising star who served as Green Bay’s offensive coordinator before jumping to Boston College as head coach before being fired under awkward circumstances before joining the Bucs as offensive coordinator before abruptly being fired amid rumors of a draw-it-up-in-the-dirt playbook before landing in the UFL before being fired after only one season on the job, is now unemployed.

For Moglia, it made sense to stay in Nebraska, even if it happened after he was hired by Virginia.  It also makes us wonder whether the term “life skills and leadership consultant” is a fancy way of saying “one more assistant coach than NCAA rules allow.”

And so the Virginia franchise in the UFL has no head coach.  Maybe Jagodzinski will apply for the job.
