Bob Stoops is returning to coaching as the head coach and general manager of the Dallas franchise in the new XFL league.
"At first I thought it probably wouldn't be for me," Stoops said. "But through our discussions as a family, started to think this would fit us correctly."
The XFL will begin play in 2020 during the early part of the year and will feature a 10-week regular season.
Stoops, 58, retired in June 2017 at Oklahoma after coaching the Sooners for 18 seasons.
