Alliance of American Football to Announce New Team

Alliance of American Football will bring football back to San Diego, allegedly

The Alliance of American Football has announced that they will announce their new team Thursday.

However, the league released a video revealing the decision to bring pro football back to San Diego. 

In February 2019, the AAF is going to start an 8-team league that plays from February through April.

The AAF has already announced it will place teams in Atlanta, Memphis, Orlando, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City and now it looks like San Diego is going to be added to that list.

In a message to NBC 7, AAF said it will present the new head coach for the San Diego team at Thursday's media event. 

NBC 7 has learned it will be former Rams coach and Madison High School alum Mike Martz.

Games are expected to be played at SDCCU Stadium, the current home of the Aztecs and former home of the NFL’s Chargers. 

Rosters will likely be made up of college players who did not spend significant time on NFL rosters and former professionals looking for another chance to get paid playing football.
