ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Predators announced Wednesday that Rob Keefe has been reinstated as head coach and VP of football operations after the Orange County Court declined to file charges on Keefe and dismissed the case for an incident involving a domestic violence request. 

 “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, 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 29 at the Amway Center,” stated Orlando Predators President Jared Saft. 

In his first season Keefe got the Orlando Predators to their first division title since 2006. Orlando came within a game of the Arena Bowl after reaching the American Conference Championship in 2014.
