Atlanta Legends

The 2019 Atlanta Legends season was the first and only season for the Atlanta Legends as a professional American football franchise; they played as charter members of the Alliance of American Football (AAF). They were one of eight teams to compete in the AAF for the 2019 season. The Legends played their home games on the campus of Georgia State University, at Georgia State Stadium and were led by head coach Kevin Coyle, after the position was resigned by Brad Childress a month before the season began.[1]

On April 2, 2019, the league's football operations were reportedly suspended,[2][3] and on April 4 the league allowed players to leave their contracts to sign with NFL teams.[4]
