The United States Football League didn’t last long. But it had its moments with spring football on national TV in major stadiums. Famous coaches and players helped build a cult following. In the USFL’s inaugural season, the Michigan Panthers used the passing of Bobby Hebert and receiving of Anthony Carter to win the first championship over the Jim Mora-coached Philadelphia Stars, led by RB Kelvin Bryant (1,442 rushing yards, 16 TDs, 53 receptions) and LB Sam Mills. George Allen coached the league’s highest-scoring team, the Chicago Blitz (12-6), to the semi-finals and a 44-38 overtime loss, despite the offensive heroics of QB Greg Landry and WR Trumaine Johnson. Steve Spurrier coached the Tampa Bay Bandits to an 11-7 mark.
