HARTFORD, CONN. (AP) - Jerry Glanville, the colorful former coach of the NFL’s Houston Oilers and Atlanta Falcons, is returning to the sidelines as head coach of the UFL’s Hartford Colonials.

UFL commissioner Michael Huyghue said Monday that bringing in Glanville is part of the league’s strategy to hire coaches who “have a winning pedigree and are household names.

Glanville joins Jim Fassel in Las Vegas and Dennis Green in Sacramento as UFL coaches who had previously worked in the NFL.

Glanville, who was 63-73 as an NFL coach, succeeds Chris Palmer who led Hartford to a 3-5 record in 2010, then left in February to become offensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans.
