It’s Friday, but that doesn’t mean the XFL is ramping the week down. XFL New York announced via Twitter that Kevin Gilbride is officially adding some new members to his staff.
Kevin Kelly will be coming on as Linebacker Assistant, Mike Miller as Wide Receivers Assistant Coach and Ronnie Vinklarek as Offensive Line Assistant.
Kelly served as the head coach at Georgetown University from 2006 to 2013, compiling a record of 24–63.
Mike Miller has filled various roles across the NFL and the CFL, spending time with the Steelers, Bills, Cardinals and Montreal Alouettes.
Vinklarek coached in the NFL for three seasons. He broke into the league in 2000 with the Tennessee Titans as their defensive quality control, linebackers and special teams coach. He moved on to the Buffalo Bills in 2001 and coached their offensive line for two seasons. In 2002 the Bills offensive line paved the way for a 4,359-yard passer in Drew Bledsoe, a 1,439-yard rusher in Travis Henry and two 1,200-yard-plus receivers in Eric Moulds and Peerless Price.
With all these announcements, it’s hard to keep track of everything. Check out the XFL2k Staff Tracker for all the latest hires.
Our staff continues to take shape!
