Former OU football coach Bob Stoops was introduced Thursday in Arlington, Texas, as the first head coach and general manager of the Dallas franchise in the revived XFL. The Rangers are moving into a new stadium across the street from Globe Life Park.
Stoops, 58, retired in June 2017 after 18 years at the helm at Oklahoma. He's the school's all-time leader with 190 career wins along with 10 Big 12 championships and won a national title in 2000. Stoops has this to say on his return to coaching in the XFL.
The XFL is making the announcement just days before The Alliance of American Football begins playing their inaugural season, which is no coincidence as the XFL needs to generate some PR buzz.

The Democrats are likely to meet resistance to their proposal in Congress, especially in the Republican-controlled Senate. The United Sates must "respect for the right of human mobility", she said before adding, "because it is a right".
Bringing Stoops on-board is the latest development for the enigmatic new XFL, a Vince McMahon creation and proposed alternative to the NFL.
"When the chance to play a key role in building a new football league came my way, I couldn't pass it up". 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. Oklahoma defeated Oklahoma State 51-48 in overtime. 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.
"We're incredibly excited to have an individual as accomplished as Bob Stoops join the XFL family", said Luck.
