UFL Boss: Omaha Must Give Clarett a Support System

The commissioner of the UFL says the Omaha
Nighthawks must have a support system in place for Maurice Clarett
before the former Ohio State star is allowed to play football.

Michael Huyghue (HEWG) said Thursday that Clarett won't be
"thrown to the wolves."

Clarett served 3 1/2 years in prison for having a hidden gun and
holding up two people outside a bar, then spent 4 1/2 months in a
community-based, lockdown dormitory.

An Ohio judge has given Clarett permission to leave the state to
attend a workout with the Nighthawks. A team spokesman says the
workout hasn't been scheduled yet.

Huyghue says he doesn't want to tarnish the league's reputation,
but added that the UFL is a league of second chances.
