Keefe to Resume Head Coaching Duties Immediately
ORLANDO – Jan. 28, 2015 – The Orlando Predators announced today that Rob Keefe has been reinstated as Head Coach and VP of Football Operations after the Court of Orange County declined to file charges and dismissed its case for a misdemeanor incident involving a domestic violence arrest.

“After an extensive internal investigation in conjunction with the Arena Football League, and a review of the actions of the State Attorney’s Office, we have decided to reinstate Coach Rob Keefe as Head Coach and VP of Football Operations effective immediately,” stated Orlando Predators President Jared Saft.
“We appreciate the patience of the fans and the public while we reviewed the facts. We look forward to getting back to the business of football and starting our season on March 29th at the Amway Center.”
In his first season as head coach in 2014, Rob Keefe directed the Orlando Predators to its first division title since 2006. Orlando secured the South Division Championship and came within a game of the ArenaBowl after reaching the American Conference Championship.
