AAF: How it works

The 2019 season marks the first year of the AAF. 

Former college football stars in the eight-team league include ex-Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg (a second-round NFL draft pick) with the Memphis Express, former Georgia QB Aaron Murray with the Atlanta Legends and ex-Alabama star RB Trent Richardson with the Birmingham Iron. Each team will have 52 players, with some of these players assigned to teams through a territorial draft.

There is a 10-week regular season, after which four teams advance to the playoffs. The league's title game will be played at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas on April 27.

     

Head coaches, rules

Coaching legend Steve Spurrier and longtime college coaches Rick Neuheisel, Dennis Erickson and Mike Riley will all be coaches in this inaugural season:

Eastern Conference

  • Atlanta Legends: Kevin Coyle
  • Birmingham Iron: Tim Lewis
  • Memphis Express: Mike Singletary
  • Orlando Apollos: Steve Spurrier

Western Conference

  • Arizona Hotshots: Rick Neuheisel
  • Salt Lake Stallions: Dennis Erickson
  • San Antonio Commanders: Mike Riley
  • San Diego Fleet: Mike Martz

The AAF will also have different rules from the NFL (and the college game).

Games will start without a kickoff, with the winner of the toss choosing between receiving or deferring. The team that gets the ball first will start at its 25-yard line. The league will have a 35-second play clock, which is different from the NFL's 40, and there will be no television timeouts.

Both teams will also get one chance in overtime. Each team gets first-and-goal from the 10. Teams must attempt to score a touchdown (no field goal attempts) and then go for two points after scores. Games can end in a tie.
