Pliant Technologies’ Parent Company, CoachComm, Provides Gameday Communications for All USFL Teams

CoachComm, the parent company of Pliant Technologies, is equipping the coaches of all eight USFL teams and game officials with the CoachComm X-System for game-day communication. The new professional football league takes its first snap on April 16, 2022, in Birmingham Alabama, where all regular games will be played in the inaugural season.

“We are excited to be working with the USFL in this new era of professional football,” says Peter Amos, President, CoachComm. “CoachComm will work closely with the USFL to provide coaches and game officials with the tools that help them communicate effectively and efficiently. We are committed to providing the USFL with state-of-the-art technologies, as well as delivering incredible service and support for the systems.”

CoachComm is changing the way coaches, players, and officials communicate, but more importantly improving the speed and flow of the game.

“CoachComm has developed simple, dependable, and innovative systems for a wide variety of industries all over the world with a track record that’s second to none,” says Daryl Johnston, USFL Executive Vice President, Football Operations. “Whether it’s coach to coach or between officials, having clear, reliable communication is essential to football played at this level. As a leader in sports communication technologies, CoachComm was the right choice for the USFL.”

The USFL has assembled an experienced group of winning coaches to lead their respective teams, including Jeff Fisher, Michigan Panthers; Larry Fedora, New Orleans Breakers; Skip Holtz, Birmingham Stallions; Kirby Wilson, Pittsburgh Maulers; Mike Riley, New Jersey Generals; Todd Haley, Tampa Bay Bandits; Kevin Sumlin, Houston Gamblers; and Bart Andrus, Philadelphia Stars.
