XFL To Announce Hiring Of Big Name Football Coach For Dallas Team

Bob Stoops

Stoops will serve as the head coach and general manager for the Dallas franchise in the league that kicks off in February 2020.

The XFL will begin play in 2020 and will have a 10-week schedule.

On Thursday, Oliver Luck officially announced former Oklahoma Sooners football head coach Bob Stoops will be the head coach and GM of the forthcoming Dallas XFL franchise. Stoops will earn the moniker of being named the first coach within the new XFL. It's believed that TV deals are close to being finalized and they recently announced Jeffrey Pollack as the President & CEO.

Part of the appeal for Stoops is the timing of the XFL season, which will start in early February and end in April. It will feature 8 teams from Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Seattle, Tampa Bay and Washington, DC.

Wrestling entrepreneur Vince McMahon is backing the venture again. "So hopefully that's how it works out".

Stoops retired from coaching in 2017 boasting a 190-48 record and 9-9 record in bowl games. There isn't any recruiting time in there. "Bob's achievements at Oklahoma are legendary, and he's the ideal person to lead our team in Dallas".
