Head coach and general manager Tom Menas knows what it means to play in alternative football leagues. A former USFL player himself in the 80’s, he found himself in coaching after his playing career ended. Having spent time coaching nearly every position under the sun, he was hired by Albany to run their team after their move to the National Arena League from the Arena Football League.
