The XFL is going to name the first of their head coaches Thursday and they’re expected to name Bob Stoops as the general manager/head coach of the Dallas franchise.
Stoops was the head football coach at the University of Oklahoma from 1999 until his retirement in 2017.
During the 2000 season, Stoops led the Sooners to an Orange Bowl victory and a national championship.
The Youngstown, Ohio native won 10 Big 12 Championships.
The 58-year-old Stoops went 190-48.
The XFL will have eight teams when it returns for the 2020 season. Those teams will include Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Tampa, St. Louis, and Washington, D.C.
The Dallas franchise will play at Globe Life Park.
