OMAHA, Neb. (WAVY) - The United Football League will return for a fourth season and a cable channel will televise games.
That means the Virginia Destroyers, who won the league championship last season, will be back to defend its title.
UFL spokesman Larry Weisman said Thursday that details about the second-tier pro league's structure would be announced later.
CBS Sports Network has agreed to televise games on Wednesdays and Fridays over an eight-week season starting Sept. 19. A network spokesman declined to disclose terms.
A network news release said former NFL coach Marty Schottenheimer would return. Schottenheimeier is the coach of the Destroyers who played their games at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex.
The league is made up of players who were cut in NFL training camps, veterans who want to get back to the NFL and free agents.
