In Search For Credibility, Major League Football Suits Up With Herm Edwards

By Barry Janoff

October 30, 2015: Major League Football, scheduled to begin its initial season in Spring 2016, has made a significant move to establish its credibility by adding Herm Edwards as senior advisor for the league and its management team.

According to MLFB, as senior advisor, Edwards would "provide advisement and consultation to members of the company's management. In particular, Mr. Edwards will provide guidance on the league's player development and mentorship to athletes. Mr. Edwards will also attend MLFB games and support other league activities during the length of his initial agreement with Major League Football."

Financial terms of the deal were not released.

Edwards played in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles (1977-1985), then became a scout and assistant coach before being named head coach for the New York Jets (2001-2005) and then the Kansas City Chiefs (2006-2008). 

Since leaving coaching, Edwards has been a NFL analyst for ESPN and ESPN Radio.

"As a past player and longtime football professional, coach and now commentator, Herm is a very welcome addition as an advisor to our team," Wes Chandler,former NFL player and now president for Major League Football. "In playing against Herm Edwards in the NFL and working with him over the years coaching young football athletes, I am personally honored to have him with us."

MLFB, a publicly-traded organization, is seeking to accomplish what such leagues as the USFL, XLF, UFL, WFL and others have tried and failed. All victims, for several reasons, of trying to go where the 800-lb. gorilla known as the NFL already treads.

The Lakewood Ranch, Fla.-based league is currently in the process of conducting tryout camps, now through November in 14 cities, to help fill rosters in anticipation of hitting the turf with eight teams.

MLFB said it is "considering more than 14 new markets as potential cities the league will further review to solidify the number of teams in its inaugural season . . . Additional cities will be considered for expansion for the planned second season in 2017."

Although MLFB said that its "strategically placed spring football season fulfills demand while not conflicting with fall leagues," its planned March-July schedule crosses paths with the start of the MLB season, NCAA Div. I Men's and Women's basketball March Madness, and the end of the NBA and NHL seasons and the entire post-season runs for both leagues.

According to Edwards, “I am excited to help Major League Football as I believe in their mission to give players and coaches more opportunities to develop their football and character skills with the hopes of continuing to play at the next level.

"“I’ve known Wes Chandler for a long time and see the value and importance in what he and his staff are trying to build. At the end of the day, I see myself as an ambassador to the game of football and this is another opportunity to contribute to the sport and positively influence the lives of young men," said Edwards.

"I speak for the entire management team on the benefits of having Herm's experience, coaching, managerial skills and his well-known enthusiasm for the sport advising our organization on and off the gridiron," Chandler said of Edwards. "Herm's football knowledge as a commentator and his skills as communicator to our players, staff, coaches and fans are a tremendous asset.”

Is MLFB The Real Deal Or Just A Passing Fancy?
