Apparently, Bob Stoops still has an itch to coach football.

Dallas' XFL franchise is set to make a far bigger front-office hire than anyone could've expected when Vince McMahon's Alpha Entertainment announced plans to revive its football league in December.

The XFL will be kicking off their ten game season in February of 2020.

Stoops hasn't coached since retiring from his position at OU in June 2017. 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.

"When the chance to play a key role in building a new football league came my way, I couldn't pass it up".

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.

"Oliver reached out to me initially about the idea", Stoops explained this week. But I respect the guys running things. The league commissioner is seasoned business and sports executive Oliver Luck, father of Colts QB Andrew Luck. 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.

At the news conference Thursday, Stoops thought the XFL would be a good fit for him and his family. That's exciting to me.
