The Spokane Shock announced Wednesday that Steve Emtman will return as defensive line coach and Travis Crusenberry, a member of the 2006 staff, will coach the offensive line on Rob Keefe's staff.

Crusenberry replaces Tom Ackerman. More here.

When Arena Football 1 announced its formation in a late September teleconference call, officials said Oct. 9th was the date when concrete details (teams, divisions, playoff structure, salary structure) would be released. That deadline obviously came and went and it sounds like the new league is giving potential new franchises more time to work through the process, according to this article.
