It didn’t take very long for Bob Stoops to have his first viral XFL moment.
The former Oklahoma Sooners head coach is leading the Dallas Renegades of the newly-formed XFL, which began play on Saturday. Dallas is currently taking on the St. Louis BattleHawks.
Stoops was interviewed before the game by ESPN sideline reporter Pat McAfee. Unsurprisingly, the interview has quickly gone viral.
McAfee asked Stoops about his quarterback, Philip Nelsen. The Dallas QB has done some Instagram modeling in the past.
“Not only an Instagram model, but an underwear model. So this will only enhance his followers,” Stoops joked.
Bob Stoops' first XFL sideline interview absolutely delivered.
