Over the past several weeks we at Major League Football MLFB have proudly announced the coaching staffs for three of our four teams – the Ohio Force, the Virginia Armada, and the Arkansas Attack. While the coaches for these teams are individuals with their own personal and professional experience, each shares a passion for the game and for helping every player reach his professional potential. Today, we are equally pleased to announce the coaching staff of our fourth and final team for the MLFB’s inaugural season starting August 9.
With hundreds of years of coaching experience, the Alabama Airborne staff is eager to get to training camp and start the process of building a team that plays exciting football. Airborne players will benefit from some of the finest football minds ever assembled and Airborne fans will find these coaches will do everything in their power to construct a team that is fun to root for.
Coaches for the 2022 Alabama Airborne include:
Head Coach-Jerry Glanville.
With more than 50 years of coaching experience, Glanville has been devoted to the game since his own high school playing career. Beyond his extensive NFL coaching resume, Glanville worked as an analyst and broadcaster for major networks such as Fox.
During his tenure as Head Coach for the Atlanta Falcons from 1990 – 1993, Glanville was literally “too legit to quit” appearing in the iconic MC Hammer music video synonymous with his Atlanta Falcons. Coach Glanville’s teams are known for their defensive tenacity, and he has coached multiple all-pro players and developed hungry defenders at all levels of football. Glanville brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the MLFB.
Offensive Line-Kris Cinkovich.
Boasting nearly 30 years of coaching experience, Cinkovich has been known throughout his career as a great mentor, tremendous recruiter, and a coach who does everything to assist his players. Cinkovich began his collegiate playing career at Spokane Falls Community College before finishing at Carroll College.
Cinkovich’s first coaching position was linebacker coach at Central Washington. His coaching career also included positions with Oregon Tech, UNLV, Green Valley HS, Las Vegas HS, UNLV, and Arkansas. Cinkovich finished his collegiate coaching career as Assistant Head Coach, Offensive Coordinator, and Offensive Line Coach at the University of Idaho.

Following a successful college playing career at the University of Hawaii as well as a professional career playing in both American and Canadian football, McCloud took a short break from the football world before beginning his coaching career at the high school level. This sparked a passion for coaching that led McCloud to eventually work at Baylor, Eastern Illinois, Syracuse, and eventually his alma mater.
