Bob Stoops comes out of retirement to join…the XFL!

8. Bob Stoops, Oklahoma (16): It’s fitting Stoops and Brown stand next to each other on this list given they met 15 times in the famed Red River Rivalry. Stoops has won eight Big 12 championships and one national title in Norman, and at 53 years old with the Sooners still humming along, he could rocket up this list. It’s hard to see Oklahoma enduring a huge drop-off under Stoops, so the only question seems to be how long he wants to stick around.

The legendary college football coach has come out of retirement to join…the XFL!

Yes, the league that Vince McMahon has brought back after failing horribly in 2001.

Moves like adding Bob Stoops will make sports fans take this league seriously, however.

Stoops was named head coach and general manager of XFL-Dallas. The league will kick things off in 2020 with an eight team/10-week season, consisting of 40-man active rosters.

Stoops was the head coach for the Oklahoma Sooners from 1999-2016, winning a National Championship in 2000, and 10 Big 12 Championships altogether.

Overall, Stoops has a overall head-coaching record of 190-48.

Gotta say, impressive first public head-coaching hire for the XFL.
