The original XFL was disbanded following its inaugural season in 2001.

Former Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops is coming out of retirement to lead the new Dallas franchise in the reincarnation of the XFL.

Stoops was introduced in a news conference Thursday by Oliver Luck, commissioner of the XFL.

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.

"I was also excited about starting something from the ground floor", Stoops said.

Body recovered from plane wreckage identified as footballer Emiliano Sala
The AAIB was unable to recover the plane due to bad weather and as a result was closing down the operation. Cardiff City have offered their "most heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the family of Emiliano".

Stoops, who received the Walter Camp Coach of the Year Award in 2000 and 2003, has an overall coaching record of 190 wins and 48 losses. But I respect the guys running things.

At first, Bob Stoops brushed it off, as he'd done to other job inquiries. "To hiring coaches, and then you gotta accumulate your players, get your organization set up, it reminds me of when I first arrived at Oklahoma". That's exciting to me.

Some expected that Stoops, 58, would return to coaching at some point following a brief hiatus, but most believed that would come in the FBS collegiate ranks to rejuvenate another program if he stepped back on the sidelines again.

Stoops officially retired as head coach of the Sooners on June 7th, 2017.
