Jerry Glanville  Career

Playing career

Glanville played college football as a middle linebacker at Northern Michigan University, graduating in 1964 with a bachelor’s degree.

He also holds a master’s degree from Western Kentucky University, where he worked as an assistant football coach on campus and roomed with fellow former NFL coach Joe Bugel.

The two were known for drawing football plays on pizza boxes.

Coaching career

National Football League

During Glanville’s time in the National Football League he was the special teams/defensive assistant for the Detroit Lions from 1974–1976, the secondary coach for the Atlanta Falcons from 1977–1978 and the Falcons defensive coordinator from 1979–1982, the secondary coach of the Buffalo Bills in 1983, the defensive coordinator of the then Houston Oilers from 1984–1985 and then as head coach from 1985–1989 (initially being the interim coach after the firing of Hugh Campbell, and then being the permanent replacement starting in 1986), and head coach of the Atlanta Falcons from 1990–1993.

As an NFL head coach, Glanville led the Houston Oilers (1985–1989) during the era known as the “House of Pain.” He was famous for often leaving tickets at will-call for Elvis Presley (who by that point had been dead for over a decade), wearing all black to be easily recognized by his players, and driving replicas of vehicles driven by actor James Dean.

The Oilers were often chastised for being a dirty, cheap-shot style team, and Glanville often feuded with AFC Central Division rival head coaches Sam Wyche, Marty Schottenheimer.

He received a highly publicized post-game tirade from Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Chuck Noll during the customary postgame handshake after the Oilers defeated the Steelers in the Houston Astrodome during the 1987 season.

Glanville turned the Oilers, a team that had struggled through most of the 1980s, into an aggressive, hard-hitting group that preached a “hit the beach” mentality and he made players, such as future Hall of Fame QB Warren Moon into household names.

The Oilers made three playoff appearances during Glanville’s tenure (which happened to be during the last three seasons of his tenure), twice playing in the AFC divisional round.

However, his final game with the Oilers was the 1989 AFC Wild Card game, played on December 31, 1989. Glanville’s 1989 squad finished its season with consecutive losses against the Bengals in Cincinnati (61–7), at home against the Cleveland Browns in the final seconds in a game that decided the AFC Central title (24–20), and at home in the playoffs against the Steelers (26–23 in overtime).

Had the Oilers defeated Pittsburgh, Glanville would have spent January 6, 1990, preparing the team to play at Denver and, possibly, play for its first AFC Championship Game berth in a decade.

Instead, Glanville was fired that day. To replace him, Oilers owner K. S. “Gud” Adams hired University of Houston head coach and former Redskins and Bears head coach Jack Pardee.

Roughly one week after his firing by the Oilers, Glanville was hired to become the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons (1990–1993). He had been a defensive coordinator for the Falcons, best known for developing the famous “Gritz Blitz” defense that featured rushing multiple players on the defensive side of the football against opposing offenses.

The brash Glanville, as well as fan favorites such as cornerback-return specialist Deion Sanders, generated a great deal of excitement in Atlanta.

A perfect preseason in 1990 raised expectations prior to the first game of the season. The host Falcons withstood a furious rally and scored on a late pick-six by Sanders. Atlanta defeated Glanville’s former team, the Oilers, 47–27.

Glanville claimed with Atlanta he inherited a “flat-tire” but would take the team to the NFC divisional round in the 1991 season.

Season highlights included a season sweep of the 49ers, which cost San Francisco a playoff spot despite both teams finishing 10-6; and the team’s first playoff victory since 1978 and only the second playoff win in the franchise’s 26-year history.

During his time with the Falcons, the team would pitch a “Back in Black” motto with new uniforms and the same aggressive type play on defense, an offensive system known as the “Red Gun” that would implement most of the principles associated with the Run-N-Shoot offense, and an emphasis on special teams as he had done in Houston.

The Falcons featured talented players such as future Hall of Famer CB “Prime Time” Deion Sanders and were known for unorthodox antics. Expectations were high after the success of the 1991 season and after the Falcons vacated Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium for the Georgia Dome, but the team’s consecutive 6–10 records for the 1992 and 1993 led the Falcons to dismiss Glanville in 1994.

He was out of football until he became the University of Hawaii’s defensive coordinator over a decade later. His career record as an NFL head coach is 63–73.

When Atlanta Falcons general manager Ken Herock selected Brett Favre in the second round of the 1991 NFL Draft, Glanville did not approve of the pick because of Favre’s personal issues with alcohol and the party lifestyle.

He said it would take a plane crash for him to put Favre into a game. Glanville also was known to place $100 bets (with Favre and others) on whether or not Favre could throw a football into the third deck of stadiums before games.

Glanville claimed the trade in the off-season of 1992 was a wake-up call for Favre who was known for even being late to the team picture during his rookie season with the Falcons.

Favre only threw four passes during his one season with Atlanta then was traded to the Green Bay Packers for a first round pick.

Favre went on to play 19 seasons, starting every game from September 20, 1992, to December 5, 2010, and becoming the first NFL player to win three AP MVP awards, as well as the first player to throw for 70,000 passing yards and 500 touchdowns.

He would also appear in two Super Bowls, winning Super Bowl XXXI.

United Football League

On March 21, 2011, the Hartford Colonials of the United Football League announced that Glanville would serve as the team’s head coach and general manager.

The Colonials suspended operations in August of that year; Glanville would remain with the league as a consultant, color commentator for the league’s television broadcasts, and liaison for potential expansion markets. Glanville left the league after one season.

College football

Glanville was formerly the defensive coordinator for the University of Hawaii’s football team, working under his former offensive coordinator (and eventual successor) at Atlanta, June Jones, for two seasons.

Prior to his tenure at the University of Hawaii, Glanville’s earlier involvement with college football was the defensive ends/outside linebackers coach at Georgia Tech from 1968–1973 and the defensive coordinator at Western Kentucky University in 1967, shortly after his own career as a player had ended.

On February 28, 2007, Glanville accepted the head coaching position at Portland State University (PSU), his first college head coaching job. Glanville, who replaced Tim Walsh, was the program’s 12th head coach in their history.

He resigned this position with the support of the university on November 17, 2009, with an overall record of 9–24 during his tenure.

Canadian Football League

On February 23, 2018, Glanville was named defensive coordinator for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League (CFL). He left the team after the 2018 season for personal reasons.

In media

The Sega Genesis system offered Jerry Glanville’s Pigskin Footbrawl, a medieval-themed arcade-style football game.

The game was a port of the 1990 classic arcade game Pigskin 621 A.D., released by Bally Midway. Glanville provided soundbites for the game.
