Mante signs with UFL team

Former Yale punter Tom Mante has been signed by the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League.

Mante graduated from Yale in 2009 owning nearly every Yale punting record. He has been working with a kicking coach and the last time I spoke with him, Mante talked about how much better his hang time and directional punting was. He attended a kicking combine with the hopes of getting another shot at pro football (Mante was briefly in camp with the Chicago Bears).

Omaha opens the regular season on Sep. 15 with a home game against the Virginia Destroyers.
