Meet Adam Shackleford


New coach Adam Shackleford came to town yesterday and met the press.

Shackleford wasted no time staking out his position: He's not Chris Siegfried.

Actually, Shackleford wants to win as often as Siegfried did, he's just going to do it his way. And Shackleford's way has been pretty successful so far, though only as an offensive coordinator not a head coach.

And Shackleford will have his own team as well. Down in the story is a list of last year's Shock players Siegfried hopes to take to Kansas City in the major Arena Football League. It's pretty much all the Shock stars.

The offseason will be interesting.
