Bob Stoops returns to coaching with Dallas in relaunched 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. "To hiring coaches, and then you gotta accumulate your players, get your organization set up, it reminds me of when I first arrived at Oklahoma".

Since his surprise retirement in June 2017, multiple college programs had reached out to Stoops and his agent to gauge his interest in jobs, and there wasn't any.

When the XFL relaunches in 2020, they'll need to do some heavy lifting in order to shed the stigma still lingering from their 2001 bust. "If it wasn't, I wouldn't do it", Stoops told KWTV. Stoops led the Oklahoma Sooners to an Orange Bowl victory and a national championship in 2000. I thought one of the best things I ever did in my career was getting my first staff together at OU.

Some expected that Stoops, 58, would return to coaching at some point following a brief hiatus, but most believed that would come in the FBS collegiate ranks to rejuvenate another program if he stepped back on the sidelines again.
