Temporary homes for multiple teams could be latest hurdle for NFL's return to Los Angeles


LOS ANGELES — The NFL may have trouble finding temporary homes for teams during stadium construction as the league looks to return to Los Angeles.

The LA Times ( ) reports Tuesday that after the NFL sent queries to five potential venues, only the Memorial Coliseum showed willingness to temporarily house a team.

But the operators of the Coliseum — currently home to USC football — made it clear they only want one NFL team, while it's possible two could be relocating.

The Rose Bowl and Stub Hub Center did not respond to the NFL. The other two venues — Angel Stadium and Dodger Stadium — could have serious scheduling conflicts with the overlap of baseball and football seasons.

The San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders and St. Louis Rams have all shown interest in relocating to new LA-area stadiums.
