The Nebraska Danger Indoor Professional Football Team is pleased to announce the addition of two assistant coaches for the 2018 season. Danger head coach Mark Stoute has added former Spokane Empire head coach Adam Shackleford as Assistant Head Coach / Offensive Coordinator. Returning to the Danger for a second season as Defensive Coordinator / Defensive Line coach is Pig Brown.
Assistant Head Coach / Offensive Coordinator: Adam Shackleford
A veteran coach of indoor football and offensive guru, Adam Shackleford joins the Danger after more than a decade of coaching indoor teams on the west coast. Coach Shackleford brings a 125-58 record as head coach from his time with the Spokane Shock, Tri-Cities Fever, and Spokane Empire. From 2007-2017, “Coach Shack” led his teams to 5 league championship games with an AF2 championship victory in 2009.
“I’ve known Coach Shackleford for many years and we are really lucky to have him joining our staff,” said Stoute. “With Spokane ceasing operations this season, I just reached out to see what his plans were, from there it was able to just fall in place for him to come to Grand Island. Every season his offense has been one of the best in the league, so it will be really exciting for fans to see what we can do this year.”
Defensive Coordinator / Defensive Line Coach: Pig Brown
Returning to the Nebraska Danger as Defensive Coordinator is Danger Hall of Fame linebacker, Pig Brown. Last season, Brown’s hard-hitting defense led the league in sacks (27). Brown’s vocal leadership and high energy will combine with Coach Stoute’s defense to create what looks to be one of the top units in the IFL.
“Coach Brown is a great guy to have on a defensive coaching staff. He knows how to fire up a defense like nobody else, and I’m excited to work with him,” said Stoute. “I can still remember coaching against him when he was playing, he was the on-field general and we had to game-plan around him. He was able to transfer that leadership into coaching last season and I’m sure he will even better with a year of coaching under his belt.”
