GOLD TRIVIA

--
The Denver Gold went through four head coaches in just three seasons, the most turnover in USFL history.
--
Former Denver Bronco head coach Robert "Red" Miller was first, lasting all of 11 games before being fired by owner Ron Blanding.
--
Charley Armey stepped in as an interim coach for Week 12 of the 1983 season, losing his only game at the helm to the L.A. Express.
--
Former Denver Bronco QB Craig Morton was hired to finish out the inaugural season, and was kept on through 1984, posting a 12-12-0 record.
--
Morton and new team owner Doug Spedding reportedly "left each other" at the end of the 1984 campaign.
--
Spedding hired Houston Gambler offensive coordinator Darrell "Mouse" Davis as the Gold's fourth and final head coach.  Davis would guide the Gold to their only playoff appearance following an 11-7-0 regular season in 1985.
--
No Denver Gold quarterback threw for more than 1,250 yards during the team's inaugural 1983 season.
--
K Brian Spellman's 66 points (via 13 field goals and 27 extra points) and RB Harry Sydney's 11 total touchdowns (9 rushing, 2 receiving) led the Gold in scoring in 1983. 
--
Despite leading the team in receptions in 1983, RB Larry Canada didn't catch a touchdown pass the entire season.
