Dennis Erickson took over at Miami (FL) (after the departure of
Jimmy Johnson) coaching the school to the National Title in 1989 and 1991. He departed Miami (FL) in 1994 and was named head coach of the Seattle Seahawks.
Erickson compiled a 39-41 record with the Seahawks over the next 4 years.
After a successful stint at Oregon St, Dennis returned to the pros again, to coach with the San Fransisco 49ers in 2003.
He coached at Idaho and Arizona State after that and at Utah briefly as a positional coach, retiring in 2016.
Erickson compiled a 179-96-1 record as a college coach.
Dennis heard the siren’s call one last time, and was lured out of retirement by the
Alliance of American Football in 2018, coaching the Salt Lake City Stallions to a 2-5 record before the league fell apart.

NOTES: This is an absolutely terrible card of Dennis. They could have actually airbrushed his face a bit more, but instead he looks like a craggily zombie with that green filter. Dennis has a pretty interesting coaching tree under him that includes Jim Zorn, Tommy Tuberville, Dan Quinn, Ed Orgeron, and Jim Mora Jr.
