San Diego’s biggest team has always been its unmistakably inspired Naval community. With heartfelt recognition of that, there’s a new pro football team in town, here to honor that historic ongoing tradition- introducing the San Diego Fleet.
The Fleet, one of eight teams in the newly founded Alliance of American Football, will debut its inaugural season in February at SDCCU Stadium. Paying homage to that rich heritage, the San Diego Fleet has a clear mission: Strive to win offensively and defensively, with firepower, strength and ingenuity.
Founded by TV and film producer Charlie Ebersol and NFL Hall of Famer Bill Polian, The Alliance of American Football is led by some of the most respected football minds in the game. The AAF is a dynamic professional football league fueled by its unprecedented Alliance between players, fans, and the game. The Alliance will feature eight teams with 50-player rosters playing a 10-week regular season schedule in the spring beginning February 9th, 2019 on CBS, followed by two playoff rounds and culminating with the championship game the weekend of April 26-28, 2019.
The Fleet’s head coach is San Diego native, Mike Martz. Martz played tight end at San Diego Mesa College and had his first college coaching position there as an assistant coach.
In 1992, Martz made his NFL debut as Quarterbacks coach for the Los Angeles Rams. In 1995, when the team moved to St. Louis, he moved to Wide Receivers coach and in 1999 as Offensive Coordinator, the team won Super Bowl XXXIV against the Tennessee Titans.
