HEAD COACHES: Bob Landsee returns to the Green Bay Blizzard as Head Coach after leading the team to its greatest season ever in 2005. Under Landsee, the Blizzard played to their first-ever winning record (9-7) and the franchise's first trip to the postseason. He originally took the helm of the Blizzard in 2005 after serving for one season as the line coach of the Indiana Firebirds of the Arena Football League. Previously, he was with the Toronto Phantoms (2002), after spending the two previous years with the Milwaukee Mustangs (2000-01). Landsee entered the coaching ranks following a very successful playing career as an offensive lineman.
As a player, Landsee earned All-American and All-Big Ten honors as a guard while playing at University of Wisconsin. Drafted by the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles in 1986, he spent four seasons on the line battling DE Reggie White every day in practice.
