The Alliance of American Football continues to fill in coaching staffs with NFL credentials, in advance of the developmental league’s debut next February.

According to Alex Marvez of SiriusXM NFL Radio, four more coaches with NFL experience are joining the league, mostly in coordinator roles.

That list includes Darren Perry and Steve Logan (in Birmingham under head coach Tim Lewis), David Lee (Memphis, with Mike Singletary), and Tim Lappano (Salt Lake City, with Dennis Erickson).

Perry, the longtime Packers assistant, interviewed for the defensive coordinator job, but was let out of his contract after he didn’t get it. Logan has worked with the 49ers and Buccaneers, and has stints with NFL Europe so he knows about the developmental task.

Lee has a long track record as a quarterbacks coach and coordinator, with the Cowboys and Dolphins, and lately bouncing through stints with the Bills, Jets, and Browns.

Lappano’s first job in coaching was under Erickson at Idaho, and also worked on his staffs with the Seahawks and 49ers.

  1. Interesting move for Perry.

    He had some good success with his group in GB (Nick Collins, HHC-D.. Morgan Burnett.. got really good play out of Charlie Peprah in the SB season)

  2. Lee has a long track record as a quarterbacks coach and coordinator, with the Cowboys and Dolphins, and lately bouncing through stints with the Bills, Jets, and Browns.

    …………………………….

    I wouldn’t put that on my resume if I was looking for a job.

  3. All of these coaches have previous NFL experience inter jobs for the AAF. Except Moose Johnston. He hasn’t worked a single day in personnel but gets to be a “GM”? What other profession does things like this occur? You typically need experience, not connections, to at least have the highest position on the totem pole. SMH. #SmellsLikeJerryJones
