Following a career in the NFL with exactly 200 regular season wins, it should come as no surprise that former Kansas City Chiefs head coach Marty Schottenheimer started off in the UFL with a victory. He led the Virginia Destroyers over the Omaha Nighthawks 23-13 in front of an impressive crowd of over 15,000.
To be honest, it didn’t seem like a fair fight from the beginning. After all, the coach Schottenheimer was facing off against, Joe Moglia, made his name as the CEO of TD Ameritrade.
After the game, Marty spoke with the UFL’s official site and sounded like a guy that never left the game.
“We had some opportunities to make some big plays, and while we failed to do it at times, we made enough that gave us the opportunity to come out with the victory.”
Though he was the headliner, Schottenheimer wasn’t the only former Chief to have a solid game. DB Ricardo Colclough blocked a Destroyers FG attempt to keep his team within striking distance.
Next up for Marty and his Destroyers is the Las Vegas Locomotives next Saturday.
