Bob Stoops to be named coach/GM of Dallas XFL team

Bob Stoops

Former OU football coach Bob Stoops was introduced Thursday in Arlington, Texas, as the first head coach and general manager of the Dallas franchise in the revived XFL.

Back in December, we found the XFL would be coming back and Dallas would be getting a franchise this time.

Stoops, 58, retired in June 2017 at Oklahoma after coaching the Sooners for 18 seasons and passing Barry Switzer as the school's all-time winningest coach.

Stoops won the national championship in 2000 and 10 Big 12 championships during his tenure at OU. "To hiring coaches, and then you gotta accumulate your players, get your organization set up, it reminds me of when I first arrived at Oklahoma". Teams are more open than ever to search for unique and innovative coaching talent, and the XFL will provide at least one more avenue to showcase different football styles and strategies. I've been limited in some of the stuff today this time of year anyway. "The style of play in this league will allow us to innovate and refresh the game, and that makes me excited to get back to the sideline again", he said. "It'll be challenging for sure". And if it's not fun, I won't do it.

The XFL kicks off in February 2020, but no official start date has been released. "But this is 'real football.' If it was something goofy or have those old goofy names, I wouldn't be associated with it".
