The Spokane Shock are expected to name Fred Biletnikoff Jr. as its new offensive coordinator, according to Arena Football League sources.
Biletnikoff was the head coach at Central Valley, one of Spokane’s rivals in arenafootball2, but the Coyotes decided not to play in 2010. He is the son of Fred Biletnikoff, the former Oakland Raiders receiver who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1988 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1991.
Biletnikoff will replace Matt Sauk, who left Spokane to become offensive coordinator for the AFL Utah Blaze. Spokane was 9-0 versus Central Valley from 2006-09 — three of those outcomes decided by two points and one by three points.
