NEW YORK (AP) -The executive director of the NFL coaches association is upset with the way the league has handled a change in assistant coaches' leaguewide pension plan.
The owners voted in March to make the pension, the 401K, and the current supplemental retirement plan non-mandatory for the clubs.
``We're most miffed that this happened with absolutely no advanced warning and that they were even discussing it,'' Larry Kennan told The Associated Press in a phone interview Sunday. ``If you ask any of the owners, coaches are really important to them. But we weren't important enough to keep in the loop. Tell us four or five months ago that we're thinking about that.''
The change in the pension led to the retirement of two longtime Indianapolis Colts coaches last week.
