The Albany Empire left the Times Union Center field as champions of the 32nd AFL Arena Bowl on August 11th 2019 for what looked like the last time. We now know that the National Arena League is bringing indoor football back to the Times Union Center and the Albany team (Which I'm hoping will be called the Empire) just got one step closer to putting that championship team back together. Head Coach Rob Keefe will be joined by Assistant Head Coach Les Moss putting back together two of the key pieces that brought a championship to Albany with the Empire.

The move was made official earlier today in a press release from the NAL and the Times Union Center:

“I am so pleased to work with Coach Moss once again,” said head coach Rob Keefe. “To have such a knowledgeable mentor, friend, coach, recruiter, and evaluator of talent by my side is invaluable. I am very excited to begin another journey with Les as we compete for another championship.”


“I am excited about another opportunity to fight for a championship in Albany,” said Coach Moss. “I am focused on the future of this organization and I am eager to help create another energetic environment full of passionate players to represent the Capital Region.”

Knowing how well these two work together can only mean good things for the Capital Region.
