Michael Vick removed as Atlanta Legends’ offensive coordinator
Where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire, and that was true of Michael Vick’s situation with the Atlanta Legends of the Alliance of American Football league.
Vick was announced last year as the offensive coordinator for the Atlanta team. But the franchise had some major coaching shakeups last month as they approached their first season of play, which begins this weekend. First head coach Brad Childress was replaced by defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle. Then there was a report saying Vick had quit as the team’s offensive coordinator. While the Legends disputed the report that Vick had quit, we know he has been removed.
Coyle said on Thursday that Vick is out as their offensive coordinator. According to Coyle, Vick has been busy with other commitments and has not been with the team full-time.
