Ex-Oklahoma Coach Bob Stoops to Run XFL's Dallas Franchise

Ex-Oklahoma Coach Bob Stoops to Run XFL's Dallas Franchise

Apparently, Bob Stoops still has an itch to coach football. Stoops' Dallas squad will play at Globe Life Park in Arlington, current home of the Texas Rangers baseball team.

Former Oklahoma Sooners football coach Bob Stoops will be back on the sidelines soon, but not where you might have expected. The 59 year-old coach led the Sooners to a National Championship in 2000.

"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. 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.


More coaches will be named in the coming weeks.

The XFL will begin play in 2020 and will have a 10-week schedule. But I respect the guys running things.

Bringing Stoops on-board is the latest development for the enigmatic new XFL, a Vince McMahon creation and proposed alternative to the NFL.


The XFL's previous incarnation lasted exactly one season in 2001. 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.

"We're incredibly excited to have an individual as accomplished as Bob Stoops join the XFL family", said Luck. That's exciting to me.
