Bob Stoops was officially introduced as the head coach of the XFL team in Dallas on Thursday afternoon.

There it is folks! Stoops is officially back in the sidelines, and will be coaching in the XFL when it launches in early 2020. Contract details haven’t been released yet, but I bet they’re paying a fortune.

Who the hell would have guessed that he’d retire from Oklahoma and end up at the XFL? My friends, the world of football is a very strange place.

That much I can tell you for sure. I never would have guessed this series of event would play out.

This is such a great get for the XFL. It gives the league immediate credibility. Stoops is one of the greatest coaches in the history of the game. (RELATED: Bob Stoops Expected To Be The Head Coach Of XFL Team In Dallas)

Putting him on an XFL sideline makes the league a power player from a coaching perspective on day one.

I can’t wait to see what the Sooners legend does in Dallas.
