Orlando Predators Head Coach Bret Munsey announced the addition of Ben Bennett to the coaching staff, replacing Rob Keefe as the team’s Offensive Coordinator.
Recently named one of the 25 Greatest Players in Arena Football History and a member of the AFL Hall of Fame, Bennett played QB for the Orlando Predators throughout the early 90s, during which he twice earned First Team All Arena Honors and took the team to two ArenaBowls.
Prior to his professional career, Bennett played under Steve Spurrier for the Duke University Blue Devils, where he finished his college career as the top passer in NCAA Division I-A history.
Since retiring from the Arena League in 1997, Bennett has served as a coach in both the af2 and AFL, most recently as Offensive Coordinator for the New Orleans VooDoo.
“It is great to have Ben back with the Predators,” says Munsey. “Throughout his college and Arena Football career, he has proven that he knows what it takes to be a winner.”
Orlando’s Arena Football League franchise since 1991, the Orlando Predators are entering their 21st year in the AFL. In that time, the Predators have advanced to the AFL Playoffs a league-leading 19 consecutive seasons and appeared in the Arena Bowl seven times, winning AFL Championships in 1998 and 2000.
