MAULERS TRIVIA

--
Before taking on the head coaching duties of the Maulers, Joe Pendry had served as Jim Mora's offensive coordinator with the Philadelphia Stars.
--
Pendry's tenure in Pittsburgh lasted all of 10 games.  Ellis Rainsberger coached the club for its final 8 games after Pendry was fired.
--
The Maulers allegedly earned the #1 draft choice in 1984 by lottery, but whether or not that's the case is a matter only one man knew for certain.
--
Peter Hadhazy, the USFL's Director of Operations, conducted the "lottery" via conference call, so there were no eyewitnesses.
--
Some believe that Hadhazy simply gave the Maulers the first pick because they had agreed to draft Rozier - and because Maulers owner Ed DeBartolo had the resources to sign him.
