"Jerry was a big contrast to our last coach and that's what we needed, an upbeat guy." --Falcons' owner Rankin Smith, on why he hired Jerry Glanville * Turns out Smith may have been only half right. These days, Glanville sounds just plain beat. After last year's playoff splash, the Falcons are 2-5, and the man who looks as if he got Zorro's luggage by mistake wears black more like a mourner than a mutineer. Call him a rebel with a headache.

It wasn't his longtime love of teaching that ultimately brought Jerry Glanville back into coaching. Nor was it advice from the late country music star Waylon Jennings, an old friend, who told the former NFL coach, "Don't you dare die with the music inside of you." It was, instead, a visit to U.S. military troops in Iraq that drove Glanville back to the sidelines -- first at Hawaii and now, for the last two years, at Portland State.

This is a story about Jerry Glanville, so it's bound to be a little odd. You expect to read about a football coach but end up on the streets of Baghdad. Or in the middle of nowhere, South Dakota. You get Elvis, a flipped-over suitcase and something called the "Black Rose." You get a fireplug of a man with a grin that's too wide and cheery for this hour of day, the hazy side of 9 a.m., which is when the University of Hawaii football team practices. "Nice, huh?" he says.

Jerry Glanville was as glib as they come when he was coaching in the NFL or talking about football as a television analyst. USC will find out on Sept. 3 whether Glanville can still scheme effectively. In March, Hawaii Coach June Jones hired Glanville, 63, to run his defense. The opener against USC will be Glanville's first coaching assignment since Jones replaced him as coach of the Atlanta Falcons after the 1993 NFL season.

Jerry Glanville hopes that what it took to get to Fontana for this weekend's NASCAR Tripleheader is not an omen for what to expect from his racing schedule at California Speedway. Driving his team's rig through searing 110-plus degree heat in the Southwest, he blew four tires during a 36-hour odyssey from Roswell, Ga.

Who am I? Here's a hint: One recent Sunday, I said the following things on television: 1. "He guessed it was an in or an out--and it was a go. He squatted at 17." 2. "You gotta be able to handle a TE, a TT and an ET." Who am I? Do we have a guess? Professor Irwin Corey? No, sorry. Here are some more hints. I also said: 3. "You're gonna see stunts by the blitz. By stunts, I mean loops." 4. "They're playing the perfect funnel on the halfback flare." I see we have another guess. Who am I?

Washington Post columnist Tony Kornheiser, on Fox NFL television color commentator Jerry Glanville. "There is national coverage and regional coverage--then there's Glanville coverage. If Glanville is doing a game, Fox is broadcasting to an area so small that your neighbors across the street may not get it. "Here's how far down on the pecking order Glanville is: The color man just below Glanville is Boris Yeltsin." * Trivia time: Notre Dame has had seven Heisman Trophy winners. Who was the first?

Jerry Glanville was fired by the Atlanta Falcons and Richie Petitbon was released by the Washington Redskins on Tuesday. One man emerged as the favorite for both vacancies--offensive coordinator Norv Turner of the Dallas Cowboys. Petitbon, 55, whose success as defensive coordinator helped the Redskins to three Super Bowls, was fired a year after he succeeded Joe Gibbs as Washington's coach. The team went 4-12, its worst record in 30 years.

Jerry Glanville's latest motivational tool is the Hammer. The rap artist has become a fixture at Atlanta games and the Falcon coach is now a fan of the man and his music. Glanville, receiver Andre Rison and cornerback Deion Sanders are showcased in Hammer's new video and the team has adopted the song's title, "Too Legit to Quit," as its unofficial fight song.

It's a match made in heaven, or maybe hell, depending on your perspective. The NFL establishment, many of the players and most of the fans in San Francisco and Miami would decidedly point to the latter, but Tim McKyer and Jerry Glanville figure they're just a couple of kindred free spirits who have found a home in Atlanta.
