The Nebraska Danger kick off their 2018 season Friday, February 23rd against the Cedar Rapids Titans, and it will be a season filled with the word “new” for both teams. Not only do the rosters typically see a significant turnover from year-to-year, but in 2018 both the Titans and the Danger will be sporting new head coaches.
Due to a legal matter involving the former league of the Bloomington Edge and the West Michigan Ironmen, those teams will be unable to participate in the IFL for the upcoming 2018 season. The IFL has announced a new schedule for the Nebraska Danger.
The Danger had a previously scheduled home game on March 24th, which had to be moved to April 7th. All tickets for the March 24 game will be accepted at the April 7 game. All other home dates remain the same, but the opposing team may have changed. The 2018 Season will kick off on Friday, February 23 against the Cedar Rapids Titans.
The Nebraska Danger Indoor Professional Football Team is pleased to announce the addition of two assistant coaches for the 2018 season. Danger head coach Mark Stoute has added former Spokane Empire head coach Adam Shackleford as Assistant Head Coach / Offensive Coordinator. Returning to the Danger for a second season as Defensive Coordinator / Defensive Line coach is Pig Brown.
The final week of the season in the IFL left a lot of questions to be answered. The Danger locked up their playoff spot in the Intense Conference Championship game with Spokane losing to Salt Lake. However, Wichita Falls came to the Heartland Events Center needing a win to advance to the IFL playoffs and came up empty against Nebraska Saturday night, ending their season.
The playoff aspirations of five teams in the Indoor Football League hang on the outcome of a game in Grand Island on Saturday night. The Danger will host the Wichita Falls Nighthawks in the final game of the regular season on Humane Society Night this Saturday.
