The Philadelphia Soul has added Darrin Kenney to its coaching staff. Kenney will work with Leroy Thompson on the offensive and defensive line for the 2012 season.

This is Kenney’s sixth season coaching in the Arena Football League. However, this will be his first season with the Soul.



He is a former Arena Football League lineman, who coached with the Alabama Vipers in 2010. He also coached the Grand Rapids Rampage in 2008.

He also spent three seasons with the Nashville Kats from 2005 to 2007.

“Darrin is a seasoned veteran who is a proven difference maker where ever he has been,” said Soul head coach Doug Plank. “He has tutored some of the all-time greats of our game. Coach Kenney was a fierce competitor as a player and brings out the best in the players he has coached over the years.”

Besides being a coach in the AFL, he also played in the league for 11 seasons. He spent time with the Tampa Bay Storm (1993), Albany Firebirds (1994-95), Arizona Rattlers (1997-00), and the San Jose SaberCats (2001-03). During his playing career, he won three ArenaBowl Championships in 1993, 1997, and 2002.

“Adding Darrin solidifies our status as having the best coaching staff in the Arena Football League,” said Soul general manager Tom Goodhines. “We continue to add quality to our team with every transaction. Between Doug Plank, Clint Dolezel, Leroy Thompson and Darrin, we now have a coaching staff that has over 47 years of AFL experience, 10 ArenaBowl appearances and five ArenaBowl titles to its credit.”
