Bob Stoops Named Head Coach of Dallas XFL Franchise

Legendary former Sooners Head Coach Bob Stoops has been named the General Manager and Head Coach for the Dallas franchise in WWE Promotor Vince McMahon's revamped XFL Football League.

The league will begin play in February of 2020, with eight teams, including one in Dallas that will play at Globe Life Park in Arlington. "If it wasn't, I wouldn't do it", Stoops told KWTV.

After serving as an assistant coach at the University of Iowa, University of Florida and Kansas State University, Stoops signed on as OU's head coach before the 1999 season. "But through our discussions as a family, started to think this would fit us correctly". He left Norman with a.798 winning percentage and a 190-48 record.

Stoops won the national championship in 2000 and 10 Big 12 championships during his tenure at OU. But I respect the guys running things.

Baseball legend and trailblazer Frank Robinson dead at 83
Robinson was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility in 1982, with 89.2 percent of the vote. After his tremendous playing career, Robinson became the first African American manager in Major League Baseball.

In addition to Dallas, the XFL will have teams based in Houston, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Seattle, New York and Washington D.C.

The original XFL was disbanded following its inaugural season in 2001.

Some might question why Stoops would choose the XFL over another college job, but for someone who wants a less-stressful, more relaxed dip back into coaching, it makes sense.
