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.
The Nebraska Danger are still fighting to earn a spot in the Intense Conference playoffs, and Saturday's match-up against the Green Bay Blizzard is important in keeping the Danger in the hunt for a spot. The Danger are currently third in the Intense Conference standings, one game behind both the Arizona Rattlers and Spokane Empire with five games remaining.
The Cedar Rapids Titans came to the Heartland Events Center with the worst record (1-8) in the IFL, hoping to get some momentum going to finish the season. Instead, a consistent passing game by the Danger helped them shred the Titans 50-38 Friday night.
