Although the XFL — a professional football league — won’t return until 2020, organizations continue to search for their head coach. At this point in time, all signs point toward Bob Stoops returning to the sideline as the head coach of the Dallas XFL franchise according to multiple reports.

After spending eighteen years on the side line as the head coach of the Oklahoma Sooners, Stoops returned to program to the national scene. Competing for several national championships and claiming one, the legendary coach compiled a 190-48 overall record. Despite the successes, Stoops decided to pass the reins on to the next generation at OU.
Heading into a short hiatus many thought the long-time coach would return to the game within the college ranks. Yet, not many predicted that this would be the one thing that enticed Stoops out of retirement.
Announcing the return of the XFL, Vince McMahon hopes to expand into eight cities at the beginning of the 2020 season. However, the group already has a competitor in the Allegiance of American Football set to launch this year.
