This change makes perfect sense, given the circumstances. While the original Pittsburgh Maulers featured purple and orange uniforms, all current professional teams in the city bleed black and gold.
The USFL is making the right move here. From a marketing perspective, the Pittsburgh Maulers should align their brand with those already present in the city. This new color-wave fits the Pittsburgh vibe, and will provide the Maulers with a fresh look heading into 2023.
Speaking of 2023, this team is ready to put the USFL on notice. It’s been a wild month for the team. Former Head Coach Kirby Wilson departed a couple of weeks ago. Then, Ray Horton was swiftly brought in as his replacement.
Clearly, the Pittsburgh Maulers are setting themselves up for success. The team continues to sign new prospects for the 2023 season, including former NFL quarterback James Morgan. As training camp approaches, expect more signing announcements to trickle through.
After a 1-9 record in their USFL debut, the Maulers are set to tackle season two with a new attitude. The good news: they’ll be rocking sweet new drip while proving the doubters wrong. Folks, it’s officially Hammer Time.
