Former coaches with Sacramento’s UFL team, the Mountain Lions, have sued the team’s owner over payment for hours worked.

The troubled United Football League ended their 2012 season after just four weeks. Sacramento’s Mountain Lions were one of just four teams returning for the league’s fourth season.

Last week, Rick Courtright filed a lawsuit in Superior Court in San Francisco against Paul Pelosi, the owner of the Mountain Lions. The suit claims “failure to pay for all hours worked (and) failure to pay wages”.

Garrett Wolfe, Defensive Coodinator Charles Bresnahan, Assistant Special Teams Coach Fabien Bownes, and Defensive Line Coach Kerry Locklin are also listed as plaintiffs on the court filing.

A court conference is scheduled for December on this filing.
