Could Michael Vick Play in New Pro League? | News | BET.com
Three of the four initial coaches of the newly formed United Football League are former NFL coaches, seemingly adding a bit of credibility to yet another try at non-NFL professional football.
The coaches are former New York Giants coach Jim Fassel, who will lead the Las Vegas team; former Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals coach Dennis Green as San Francisco's coach; and ex-New Orleans Saints coach Jim Haslett for Orlando. Ted Cottrell, who will lead the New York team, is the only one of the new coaches who has never held that position in the NFL.
There are also reports that the new league is trying to woo Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick to play in its first season, reports the SportsXchange.com.
Vick is scheduled to be released from prison in May but faces a suspension from the NFL for his conviction related to dogfighting.
