XFL To Announce Hiring Of Big Name Football Coach For Dallas Team

The Dallas XFL franchise is expected to name former Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops as the team's first coach, and in addition to his on-field duties, the Youngstown, Ohio, native will also serve as the team's general manager, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. ProFootballTalk.com reported the news ahead of a press conference scheduled for Thursday at Globe Life Park in Texas.

Stoops retired from coaching in 2017 boasting a 190-48 record and 9-9 record in bowl games.

Stoops won the national championship in 2000 and 10 Big 12 championships during his tenure at OU. Ever since that news came out, the XFL has been pretty quiet. "You can only do so much golf in this period", Stoops said.

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 I respect the guys running things.

RBI Policy: MPC cuts repo rate by 25 basis points to 6.25%
With inflation largely under control, the big concern for the government is growth, particularly in an election year. The repo rate is the rate at which the central bank lends short-term money to the banks.

The XFL kicks off in February 2020, but no official start date has been released.

Bringing Stoops on-board is the latest development for the enigmatic new XFL, a Vince McMahon creation and proposed alternative to the NFL. Stoops also said he likes that the new iteration of the XFL will be void of some of the attention ploys associated with the league during its first go-round that lasted only for the 2001 season. So a lot of it will be different, which will be fun to experiment with, work through, be a part of and see how it goes.

Stoops credited XFL CEO and commissioner Oliver Luck for convincing him to return to coaching and take a chance in the reborn league. That's exciting to me.
