Theus Promoted to Lead 2013 Blue Racers

Former Arena Football League coach, Martino Theus has been promoted within the Marion Blue Racers Professional Football Organization to Head Coach. Theus was the Head Coach for the UIFL's Mississippi Hound Dogs last season. The move is made just days before the Marion Blue Racers are set to open up camp in Marion, Ohio.
As a highly touted Offensive Guru, Coach Theus will draw upon his playing experience to lead the Blue Racer offense into Saginaw, Michigan Friday, February 8th against the reigning, defending CIFL Champion Saginaw Sting in the marquee CIFL season opener. Coach Theus is the all-time leader in receiving yards, catches, and touchdowns for the Rochester Brigade in the AFL2. Theus' playing career is most noted for his record breaking season in 2002, accumulating 160 receptions, 1750 yards, and 23 touchdowns.
His impressive coaching resume began while under the tutelage of legendary Arena coach Irv Favre, father of Brett Favre, while with the Mississippi Firedogs. As the defensive backs coach for the AFL2's Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings, Theus' stout 4th ranked defense led the Battle Wings to back to back division championships. In 2010, Theus re-signed to the Arena Football League Battle Wings as the Defensive Coordinator.
