The 2009 Miami Valley Silverbacks season was the 4th season for the American Continental Indoor Football League franchise. The Silverbacks planned on sitting out the 2009 CIFL season,[1] but due to the West Virginia Wild getting suspended from the league, the CIFL offered for the Silverbacks to take the place of the Wild. They had been schedule to play a 12-game season, primarily as a traveling team only playing two home games at Hobart Arena, but two of their road games were cancelled. The team hired Derrick Shepard, a former NFL and Arena Football League Defensive Tackle, to coach the team.[2][3] On April 14, the Silverbacks announced that a majority of their remaining 2009 season were to be broadcast live online for free on MCP-TV at www.miamicountypost.com. Professional sports announcer, JT Szabo provided the play-by-play.[4] The team finished with a franchise worst record of 0-10, failing to make the playoffs for the 3rd straight season.
