Ex-Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops back with XFL’s Dallas team

Ex-Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops back with XFL’s Dallas team

Stoops, who spent 18 seasons as Oklahoma's head coach, was introduced as the head coach and general manager of the new XFL franchise based in Dallas on Thursday.

Former Oklahoma Sooners football coach Bob Stoops will be back on the sidelines soon, but not where you might have expected. Stoops was 190-48 at OU with 10 Big 12 championships and won the 2000 national title in leading the Sooners to a 13-0 record.

"It will take a lot of film study and analytics and a lot of work from your staff to try and find the right guys", Stoops said. 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.

The revamped XFL, which begins play in 2020, now has its first head coach.

Nantes Submit Demand To Cardiff City For Emiliano Sala Deal
The BBC claims that Nantes have threatened the Welsh club with legal action if the payment is not made within the next 10 days. His father, Horacio Sala , described his pain and anguish on Sunday after he found out about his son's disappearance on TV.

Given his dedication to the University of Oklahoma, friendship with Stoops, and affiliation with Vince McMahon, Jim Ross is pretty fired up about the news.

For the second installment of the XFL, they are showing just how serious they are in staying around for more than one season. Former West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck left his job with the NCAA in June to be the XFL's commissioner and CEO.

"It's a different time of year".

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