OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ The United Football League will return for a fourth season and a cable channel will televise games.

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 coaches Marty Schottenheimer and Jim Fassel would return. Schottenheimer is with the Norfolk, Va., team and Fassel with Las Vegas. Omaha, Neb., and Sacramento, Calif., also had teams in 2011.

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.
