Playing career

Glanville played middle linebacker at Northern Michigan University, from which he graduated in 1964.

Coaching career

National Football League

During Glanville's time in the National Football League he was the special teams/defensive assistant for the Detroit Lions from 1974–1976, the secondary coach for the Atlanta Falcons from 1977–1978 and the Falcons defensive coordinator from 1979–1982, the secondary coach of the Buffalo Bills in 1983, the defensive coordinator of the then Houston Oilers from 1984–1985 and the Oilers head coach from 1986–1989, and head coach of the Atlanta Falcons from 1990-1993.

As an NFL head coach, Glanville was more renowned for his antics and brash, outspoken personality than for his success on the field (his career record is 63-73). While coaching the Falcons, he regularly challenged and mocked opposing teams players on television and in interviews. He was also famous for often leaving tickets at will-call for the late Elvis Presley, wearing all black to be easily recognized by his players, and driving replicas of vehicles driven by James Dean.

When Brett Favre was selected in the second round of the 1991 NFL Draft by Atlanta, Glanville did not approve because of Favre's drinking,and said it would take a plane crash for him to put Favre into a game.[1] Favre only threw four passes during his one season with Atlanta. After leaving Atlanta for Green Bay, Favre would go on to play 19 seasons, starting every game from September 20, 1992, to December 5, 2010,[2] and becoming the first NFL player to win three AP MVP awards, a feat matched only once since.[3] He would also appear in two Super Bowls, winning Super Bowl XXXI.

United Football League

On March 21, 2011, the Hartford Colonials of the United Football League announced that Glanville would serve as the team's head coach and general manager.[4]

College football

Glanville was formerly the defensive coordinator for the University of Hawaii's football team, working under his former coordinator at Atlanta, June Jones for two seasons.[5] Prior to his tenure at the University of Hawaii, Glanville was the defensive ends/outside linebackers coach at Georgia Tech from 1968–1973 and the defensive coordinator at Western Kentucky University in 1967.

On February 28, 2007, he accepted the head coaching position at Portland State University (PSU), his first college head coaching job.[6] Glanville, who replaced Tim Walsh, was PSU's 12th head coach in the history of the program. He resigned this position with the support of the university on November 17, 2009, with an overall record of 9–24 during his tenure.[6]

NASCAR career

Jerry also had a brief career as the Owner/Driver of a black #81 Craftsman Truck Series from 1995 thru 1999, with a best finish of 14th four times. He finished 18th in the points in 1995 as his best points position of his career.

In media

The Sega Genesis system offered Jerry Glanville's PigSkin Footbrawl, a medieval-themed arcade-style football game. The game was a port of the 1990 classic arcade game Pigskin 621 A.D., released by Bally Midway.

Jerry appeared among the hosts of the pregame shows for Cartoon Network's annual Super Bowl parodies, The Big Game, from 1999 through 2001 - Tweety VS Sylvester in 1999, Wile E. Coyote VS Road Runner in 2000, and Bugs Bunny VS Daffy Duck in 2001. In the pregame picks for these games, he always picked the character who was not likely to win; surprisingly, in the Bugs VS Daffy game, he was correct in predicting that Daffy would win.
