Former Hawkeye Bob Stoops takes head coaching job in XFL

Until this week, the XFL announced the new head coach and general manager of their Dallas franchise will be former Oklahoma Sooners head coach Bob Stoops.

A source lose to Stoops told ESPN that he liked the idea of getting back into coaching without it being overly time consuming.

We should start hearing more announcements from the XFL as we move into the spring of 2019, including names, colors and other team specifics.

The news was reported by the aforementioned football sports media outlet ahead of a press conference scheduled for Thursday at Globe Life Park in Texas. Stoops brings an impressive resumé to the job, including an NCAA national championship with Oklahoma and 18 years of college headcoaching experience where he posted a career winning percentage of.798. The XFL is also utilizing a "Football Reimagined Committee", consisting of former NFL players and coaches like Doug Flute and Jim Caldwell, to help reshape the game.

"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.

The XFL will begin play in 2020 during the early part of the year and will feature a 10-week regular season. Stoops is looking forward to the future of the XFL.

"I've missed it, obviously", Stoops said of coaching.
