JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Rick Mueller is the new general manager for all four of the new United Football League's teams.

Mueller is a former personnel executive with the Jacksonville Jaguars and New Orleans Saints. Along with serving as GM for the teams, he will oversee scouting and player acquisition for the league, which is scheduled to begin playing in October.

The UFL is currently holding tryouts in Las Vegas, where one of its franchises will be located. The other three are in New York, San Francisco and Orlando.

The teams will be led by three former NFL head coaches: Jim Fassel, Dennis Green and Jim Haslett. Ted Cottrell, a longtime defensive coordinator, will coach the New York team.
