Bob Stoops Named Head Coach of Dallas XFL Franchise

Share

Bob Stoops is back in football, this time as the head coach and general manager of the XFL's Dallas franchise. For Stoops, "the idea of getting back into coaching without it being overly time-consuming" was what he found so appealing. Luck is the one tasked with recruiting head coaches to the XFL, which has no team owners and is run by World Wrestling Entertainment chairman Vince McMahon. The Rangers are moving into a new stadium across the street from Globe Life Park. He led the Sooners to the 2000 National Championship.

"When the chance to play a key role in building a new football league came my way, I couldn't pass it up".

Stoops hasn't coached since retiring from his position at OU in June 2017. But given the current climate and the toll certain controversies have taken in recent years, perhaps the time is right for a new football league to try and compete alongside the NFL. "It'll be challenging for sure". "I have a lot of respect for him and when he talks I listen".

"I was also excited about starting something from the ground floor", Stoops said.

The new version of the XFL, which will kick off in February 2020, will feature eight teams with 45-man active rosters, a 10-week regular season and two-week postseason. "But this is 'real football.' If it was something goofy or have those old goofy names, I wouldn't be associated with it".
