Defensive Coordinator Pepper Johnson has been fired. This comes as the Wildcats shake up their entire defense. They cut the face of their defense in Anthony Johnson earlier this morning. XFL News Hub’s own Konnor Fulk is reporting.
Breaking News: The LA Wildcats have FIRED Defensive Coordinator/Linebackers Coach Pepper Johnson.— Konnor Fulk (@XFLKonnor) February 10, 2020
This thing is in concrete now. Sources confirmed
After the game, Saturday, Head Coach Winston Moss was very upset with his coordinators. He said that earlier in the week he gave his coordinators 3 things to do in the game: Win the turnover battle, win the explosive play battle, and win the field position battle. They did none of those and Moss was visibly upset.
Pepper Johnson is a 5 time Super Bowl Champion (2 as a player, 3 as a coach). He was a coach with the Patriots as well as the Bills and Jets.
This is a jaw-dropping move after just one game. The best guess here is that there were some locker room issues as now the DC and defensive captain Anthony Jonhson have been let go by the team
The Wildcat players are off today so they were just as shocked as everybody else.
More to come.

Moss is either way smarter than the rest of us or he’s insane and intent on driving that franchise into the basement.

Agreed, Moss is the problem not peppers or johnson.
Anyone coach who starts firing coordinators after one game is really showing that he is insecure and does not have a handle how to coach a team.

Lmao imagine relocating your family so some stuck up retard can fire you as scapegoat after 1 wk because his team didn’t execute. This guy shouldn’t be making any decisions for a professional sports team.
