Atlanta Legends refute report that Mike Vick quit team
There is already some significant turnover within the coaching staff for the Atlanta Legends of the new Alliance of American Football League.
On Tuesday, former Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress left his position as the head coach of the Legends. Football Scoop reported that a day later, offensive coordinator Mike Vick left the team. However, the Legends said that Vick remained with the team at their training camp.
Frank Kleha, dir. of team communications for the Atlanta Legends, disputes that Michael Vick has quit the team and says he's with the Legends at their training camp in San Antonio, Texas. So much for that. https://t.co/c0oQWO80wy

Vick’s status is something to watch. Keep in mind that this would be his first coaching job.
Defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle replaced Childress as the team’s head coach. The AAF is set to begin play next month. They have a 10-game regular season schedule.
