SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The San Francisco entry in the new United Football League will be called the California Redwoods.
UFL commissioner Michael Huyghue announced the name Tuesday and unveiled team uniforms of green, blue and white. The name was selected after reviewing more than 30,000 fan entries.
Former NFL coach Dennis Green will coach the Redwoods, who will play their home games at AT&T Park. The team is scheduled to play its first game Oct. 8 against the Las Vegas Locomotives.
The names of the other two UFL teams based in New York and Orlando, Fla., will be announced later this week.
