The UFL's Florida Tuskers and their gridiron greats have generated a great deal of press regarding their upcoming season. Recent coverage includes features in the Orlando Business Journal, the Orlando Sentinel, and the Inquisitr. Coverage of the recent hiring of Jay Gruden, of the legendary Gruden coaching family, as the Tuskers' new head coach includes pieces in the Orlando Sentinel and USA Today:
- The team also and [sic] grabbed attention by recruiting some of the sport’s high-profile names such as National Football League players Brooks Bollinger, a former quarterback for the New York Jets; Tatum Bell, former running back for the Denver Broncos; and head coach Jim Haslett, now with the Washington Redskins. – Richard Bilbao, Orlando Business Journal
- This league would like to be the place where undrafted players come to impress the scouts. A good number of 2009 UFL players ended up moving on to the NFL late into that season. – Joshua Lobdell, Inquisitr
- [Tuskers receiver Chris] Gessner was one of the players constantly sending text messages to [UFL commissioner Michael] Huyghue as the search for Haslett's replacement ensued. "'We want Coach Gruden. We want Coach Gruden' .. all these text messages," Huyghue said. "That speaks volumes to me." – Chris Hays, Orlando Sentinel
