  • Brian Woods, the former CEO of The Spring League, will become President of Football Operations
  • Edward Hartman as Executive Vice President of Business Operations

  • Mike Pereira as Head of Officiating

“Fox Sports will announce today that a newly reconstituted United States Football League will kick off in April.”

Daryl Johnston is the second former XFL employee now part of the new USFL, we assume he wont be the last. Former Houston Roughnecks President Brian Michael Cooper is part of USFL legal team. Johnston was the director of player personnel for the Dallas Renegades.

It seems like The Spring League is no more as Fischer points out that Brian Woods is the ‘former CEO’ of the TSL.
