The Salt Lake Stallions are a professional American football team based in Salt Lake City and one of the charter members of the Alliance of American Football (AAF), which began play in February 2019. The Stallions are the northernmost team in the AAF, as the league's only franchise north of the 35th parallel. The team's head coach is Dennis Erickson, who has a 179–96–1 record coaching college football and a 40–56 record coaching in the NFL.

History[edit]

The Alliance Salt Lake City charter franchise was announced to play at Rice–Eccles Stadium by the Alliance of American Football on May 14, 2018.[1] Dennis Erickson was named by the league as head coach on May 16, 2018.[2] Randy Mueller was named general manager by September 25, 2018.[3]

The western four teams' names and logos were revealed on September 25, 2018, with Salt Lake as the Stallions with the colors of blue, deep sky blue and silver.[4] The name is inspired by the land speed records set at the Bonneville Salt Flats, while the colors represent aspects of Utah's geography like Great Salt Lake and the Wasatch Range.[5]

The final 52-man roster was set on January 30, 2019.[6] The team's first game was a 38–22 defeat to the Arizona Hotshots at Sun Devil Stadium on February 10, 2019.[7] Their first home game will be on February 23, also against the Hotshots.[8]
