Really did not know where to post this, but it looks like Bob Stoops will be the first head coach and GM of the XFL.

He will head up the Dallas franchise.

 

My question, Why the hell would he want to take a job like that.?

He's probably being paid a lot of money, he gets to stay close to home, he gets attention, control, and likely a longer leash (assuming the league lasts) than the NFL.

I get all that, but the XFL?  Had he wanted to get back into football, I am sure the NFL and many colleges would have been open to him.

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

But he could fail in those places, and it would matter. If the XFL fails, it is very unlikely to be do to him.

Bob Stoops turned down the NFL several times a few years ago to go to the XFL

I guess, but I doubt whether guys like Stoops think about failing all that much.

More than likely.

 

I was surprised to hear the other new league AAF starts this week.

 

It will be interesting to see if that survives until the XFL starts.
