IF IT is the goal of just about everybody in the Arena Football League to make it to the NFL, former Soul coach Bret Munsey sure took the long way.
Munsey has been hired by the Eagles to be a college scout for the Mid-Atlantic region. For a football lifer like Munsey, this is a golden opportunity.
"I left Philadelphia with a championship, and then to get the call to join an organization like the Eagles is the ultimate dream," Munsey said.
Munsey was the Soul's coach from 2006-08. His first child, son Graydon, was born the same weekend in 2008 when the Soul beat San Jose for the ArenaBowl title. A lockout by owners forced the cancellation of the 2009 season and Munsey moved on to a player personnel position in the United Football League when the Soul resumed playing in 2011.
