One of the more colorful coaches the Kansas City Chiefs have had in recent memory, Tim Krumrie, will be taking his talents to Hartford, CT. There he will be matched up with equally entertaining Jerry Glanville as the defensive line coach for the Hartford Colonials of the UFL.
“There are three great pro defensive line coaches, and we just got one of them,” Glanville said. “He teaches technique with hustle, hit and chase. I interviewed him about the different things we do. He knew it all. In fact, he has played it all and taught it all. Tim is a real plus for Hartford.”
Krumrie, who shattered his leg during Super Bowl XXIII with the Bengals, developed a reputation for putting incoming linemen through intense hand-to-hand combat sessions during Pro Day workouts.
Krumrie played from 1983 through 1994 with the Bengals. He coached in Cincinnati from 1995 through 2002, Buffalo from 2003 through 2005, and Kansas City from 2006 through 2009 . He was out of the league in 2010.
How are the Colonials games not must-see TV? Not only do you have Glannville looking over his shoulder to see if Elvis has arrived at the stadium yet, but then there will be Krumrie screaming and yelling like a maniac.
Season tickets for the UFL, here I come!
