Bob Stoops

NBC reports that former Oklahoma Football coach Bob Stoops is expected to be the head coach of the Dallas franchise. ProFootballTalk.com reported the news ahead of a press conference scheduled for Thursday at Globe Life Park in Texas. The 59 year-old coach led the Sooners to a National Championship in 2000.

According to the league, the XFL "will reimagine football for the 21st century" and deliver "authentic, high-energy football for the whole family at an affordable price". Bob left the University of Oklahoma in 2017 and hasn't coached since.

The expected launch will test whether the controversy is simply a Washington obsession or a substantive threat to her candidacy. She pointedly said of President Donald Trump , "The man in the White House is not the cause of what is broken".

"I think he's restless and bored but he doesn't want to go back to the 12 month grind...the XFL is basically a part-time job", Tramel said on the Paul Finebaum Show. Other XFL teams, which do not yet have head coaches, are slated for Houston (TDECU Stadium), Los Angeles (StubHub Center), New York (MetLife Stadium), St. Louis (The Dome at America's Center), Seattle (CenturyLink Field), Tampa (Raymond James Stadium) and Washington, D.C. (Audi Field).

The XFL is making the announcement just days before The Alliance of American Football begins playing their inaugural season, which is no coincidence as the XFL needs to generate some PR buzz. "If it wasn't, I wouldn't do it", Stoops told KWTV. But I respect the guys running things.
