Dean Cokinos, who returns to Huntsville (where he won af2 championship
with the Tennessee Valley Vipers of the af2) after a two year stint as
the head man for the Georgia Force of the AFL. Cokinos has a strong
reputation for finding and developing players. He has helped dozens of
players move up to the NFL and CFL ranks while serving as a coach in the
AFL and af2, as well as working in player personnel evaluating
arena/indoor players for the Tennessee Titans. "We're in a talent rich
