Jerry Glanville, whose taste in fashion leans toward the funereal, had one question when he was named defensive coordinator at the University of Hawaii, which gave up 38 points a game last season. "I wanted to know if I had to wear one of those shirts with the flowers on it," said Glanville, who in his days as an NFL head coach in Houston and Atlanta during the late 1980s and early '90s, was the NFL's Man in Black. While Aloha wear isn't exactly Glanville's style, it's clear that the guy who helped christen the Astrodome "The House of Pain" and directed the Falcons' "Grits Blitz" is happy to be back coaching.

When Brett Favre was about 8 years old, he and his brother started feeding cookies to three alligators living in a river that surrounded his home on three sides in Kiln, Miss.The alligators liked the cookies so much that they'd climb out of the river and go to Favre's house to get the cookies when Favre came home from school.This went on for several weeks until his father, a high school football coach, came home one day to find his sons trying to turn the alligators into pets. His father stopped that by shooting the alligators.

ROCKINGHAM, N.C. -- Buck Baker, who is a hard man to please, watches car No. 88 move through North Carolina's Motor Speedway's second turn."See how smooth he is?" Baker asks. "Watch him in Turn 2. The corner of the track has a crown in it, which many Winston Cup drivers don't even know. Then the wall narrows in and comes back up. The instinct is to jerk away from the wall, which is the wrong thing."The driver of car 88, Atlanta Falcons coach Jerry Glanville, does the right thing and does not jerk away from the wall.

Jerry never forgets or forgivesJerry Glanville, the outspoken coach of the Falcons, never has forgiven Bobby Beathard for predicting his demise as the Oilers coach in 1989. That was the year Beathard spent as an NBC-TV commentator before becoming the Chargers general manager.Glanville, who noted earlier this year that the Redskins haven't missed a beat since Beathard left, was bragging last week about the trade that brought Billy Joe Tolliver from San Diego to Atlanta for a fifth-round pick.

The NFL may stand for the National Football League to you, but not to Jerry Glanville. Glanville, coach of the Atlanta Falcons, has always seen things differently from most off-the-rack folk.He believes his players must play with the sensitivity of trained killers. He believes down and distance mean nothing when your playbook is jammed with asterisks and exclamation points instead of X's and O's.He believes he'd rather get bitten by another snake than spend an afternoon with Chuck Noll or Sam Wyche.

Joe Greene joined the Miami Dolphins as defensive line coach yesterday, less than a week after leaving the same position with the Pittsburgh Steelers.Greene became the second former All-Pro hired by the Dolphins in three days. On Saturday, ex-Miami center Dwight Stephenson rejoined the team as assistant offensive line coach.* BILLS: Coach Marv Levy took the blame for failing to keep all of his players focused on the Super Bowl, resulting in some well-publicized, off-field distractions."I'll tell you where I feel I came up short -- that is the fact that we had four individual incidents where I didn't reach our players," Levy said at his annual state-of-the-Bills address.
