Latest version of USFL to kick off first season in spring of 2014

The United States Football League says it will kick off its inaugural season in the spring of 2014.

The original USFL played from 1983-87, then went out of business after winning a lawsuit against the NFL and collecting only $3.

When the reformation of the league was announced earlier this year, organizers targeted playing next March. Now, that date has been pushed back a year.

Plans are for a 14-game season played by eight franchises, none of which has been identified yet.

All players and coaches contracts will be owned by the USFL, and each team owner will be a member-operator of the league.
