Former Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl wide receiver Hines Ward (above) was on hand Thursday to introduce the first head coach of Alliance San Antonio: Mike Riley.
“This guy is a football genius in every aspect of the game,” Ward said.
Riley previously coached in San Antonio as part of the World League.
The announcement was made at a news conference for the Alliance of American Football at San Antonio City Hall.
Riley’s return to San Antonio had been reported earlier by a number of media outlets.
