And then there was 1 left….

Birmingham has been named as the home city for a team in the inaugural season of the Alliance of American Football. The league is set to start play next February. Birmingham joins San Diego, Phoenix, Atlanta, Orlando, Memphis and Salt Lake City as sites where teams will play and one more city will be announced to round out the eight-team league.

The Birmingham Alliance of American Football team has a head coach, and he comes to the Magic City with an extensive NFL resume. Former NFL defensive back and longtime assistant coach Tim Lewis was named the AAF Birmingham franchise’s first head coach.
