Card: Topps AAF 2019
Acquired: TTM 2019, C/o Home
Sent: 5/16 Received: 5/24 (8 days)

  • He departed Miami (FL) in 1994 and was named head coach of the Seattle Seahawks.

  • 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.

ACCOLADES:

  • State of Washington Hall of Fame 2017

  • NCAA National Champion¬† ¬†(89/91)

  • College Football Hall of Fame inductee

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.
