Hal Mumme and the Air Raid are taking flight again. This morning, The Spring League, a pro developmental league, announced that Mumme will be the head coach of the Linemen, a new expansion squad.

Google tells me The Spring League (TSL) has been around for four years and brands itself was “the premier professional football development league in the United States and abroad,” touting players who have spent time on an NFL active, practice, or pre-season roster. There are eight teams, with the North Division headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana (games at Lucas Oil Stadium) and the South Division operating out of Houston, Texas (games at Rice Stadium). The 2021 season will kick off on Thursday, May 6, with Mumme’s Linemen taking on the Conquerors in the second game of a doubleheader.

Mumme, whose Air Raid offense rose to fame in the 90s at Valdosta State and Kentucky, was most recently the offensive coordinator for Bob Stoops’ Dallas Renegades in the XFL. You may remember the video of a player colliding with him on the sideline in March 2020. Even though his leg was broken, Mumme still called the rest of the game from the sideline:

After the accident, Mumme took on the role of advisor while he was recovering. A few weeks later, the XFL ceased operations due to the pandemic.

Best of luck to Mumme in his new role. Fly, Linemen, fly!
