Alabama Hammers Announce 2013 Coaching Staff

Alabama Hammers head coach Dean Cokinos has announced his coaching staff for the 2013 Professional Indoor Football League season.
Demetrius Derico will serve as defensive backs coach, Calvin "Big O" Ousby will direct the offensive line and Eric Scott will coach the defensive line. Joining the former Vipers on the sideline will be Don Clauser, who will be in charge of special teams.
"I am really pleased with the way the team is coming together and I am excited about the opportunity to work with this young coaching staff," Cokinos said.
"Demetrius, Calvin, Eric and I have all been through the battles together and have achieved the highest goal possible along the way (the Vipers 2008 af2 championship.) These guys will bring a lot of experience and knowledge of the game to the players, as well as support the culture and attitude that we will strive to incorporate here in Huntsville."
Derico served as defensive backs coach alongside Cokinos with the AFL's Georgia Force the last two seasons and served in the same capacity with the AFL's Alabama Vipers in 2010. As a player, Derico led the Vipers in tackles through the '08 and '09 seasons.
Ousby has served as an assistant coach at Grissom and was an anchor on the Tennessee Valley offensive line from 2006-09, while Scott currently coaches at Scottsboro and is coming off an arena career that saw him set a Viper team record with 17.5 sacks in '08 and later spend time with Georgia in the AFL and the Hammers last season.
Clauser is a long-time coaching veteran and two-year coordinator with the Hammers. He currently helps direct the Madison Academy football program.
