Schottenheimer sues UFL founder for $2.3 million

As Michael Florio reported on NBC Sports, if the UFL isn’t already dead, it soon will be.

News today that former Virginia Destroyers coach Marty Schottenheimer has sued the league for over 2-million dollars in unpaid compensation.

Marty now joins another former UFL coach Dennis Green who is also suing the league for unpaid wages.

Marty was all smiles when he took the job last year, and why not, league founder Bill Hambrect personally guaranteed him a 2 point 3 million dollar salary.

When he didn’t get paid, Marty threw in the towel; his brother Kurt replaced him as head coach without any explanation.

The Destroyers are still scheduled to play Sacramento tomorrow night (Fri) at the Sportsplex.

    It’s really sad that the players and coaches (not to mention Hampton Roads sports fans) got burned by the league’s poor management. The support was there from fans, but the UFL brass could never get out of its own way. Shame.
