Stoops expected to be named coach of XFL team — NBC Sports

Stoops expected to be named coach of XFL team — NBC Sports”

Vince McMahon's XFL is expected to announce the hiring of Bob Stoops as the head coach and general manager of the league's franchise in Dallas, Texas. "You can only do so much golf in this period", Stoops said.

The XFL is expected to begin play in 2020, the week after Super Bowl 54. "But through our discussions as a family, started to think this would fit us correctly". "If it wasn't, I wouldn't do it", Stoops told KWTV. There are now eight teams. Shortly before the 2017 season, Stoops abruptly announced his retirement from coaching, handing over the reins to up-and-coming offensive guru Lincoln Riley. I thought one of the best things I ever did in my career was getting my first staff together at OU. Stoops won seven games his first season before going 13-0 and winning a national championship in 2000. Since Stoops's departure, Oklahoma has made consecutive College Football Playoff appearances, both times seeing a premature exit in the semifinal round. "The opportunity to put it together and help it grow". While that league featured WWE-inspired flourishes like a race for the ball rather than a coin toss and players being allowed to select a name of their choice for their jerseys, the new XFL will focus more on football, according to league executives. Former West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck left his job with the NCAA in June to be the XFL's commissioner and CEO.
