Bob Stoops Expected To Be Named XFL Head Coach, General Manager

However, it appears as if Stoops has been lured away from his vacation with an offer from a professional football league in need of a jolt to get off the ground in 2020.

Vince McMahon's XFL is scheduled to announce its first of eight head coaches this coming Thursday in Dallas, according to NBC Sports.

The other inductees include former Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops, NFL Hall of Fame offensive lineman Will Shields, Olympic gold medal wrestler Kendall Cross, longtime Oklahoma softball coach Patty Gasso, World Series victor Mike Moore and three-time Silver Slugger victor Mickey Tettleton.

Stoops spent 18 years as the coach of the Sooners (1999-2016), compiling an overall record of 190-48 in Norman, Oklahoma, and capturing the national championship during the 2000 season in just his second year at the helm.

Hugh Jackman's commercial for Ryan Reynolds' gin company is hilariously brutal
Jackman was skeptical that their truce was a real thing though and you can see that hesitation in his commercial. Reynolds, foolishly, assumes Jackman had been working just as hard on his add for Reynolds' Aviation Gin .

Oklahoma reporter Dean Blevins confirmed the hire today.

This news was also reported by Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.

Stoops has been mentioned for a couple of other jobs since retiring from Oklahoma, including the Auburn job and the Ohio State job following Urban Meyer's retirement, but he's settling in the XFL. The former IL and New Mexico State coach will be one of seven inductees into the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame on February 19 in Oklahoma City.
