Oklahoma Insider Reveals Why Bob Stoops Took The XFL Job

Former Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops is coming out of retirement to lead the new Dallas franchise in the reincarnation of the XFL.

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

Former Oklahoma Sooners football coach Bob Stoops will be back on the sidelines soon, but not where you might have expected.

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". 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).

"Oliver reached out to me initially about the idea", Stoops said (via sooner sports.com). I thought one of the best things I ever did in my career was getting my first staff together at OU.

"It was explaining what our league was about", Luck said.

The XFL is trying to make a big difference this time around. That's exciting to me.

Stoops was introduced in a news conference Thursday by Oliver Luck, commissioner of the XFL.
