The XFL could reportedly be on the verge of another major head coaching hire.
The league, which will debut in 2020, has already hired former Oklahoma Sooners head coach Bob Stoops, who’s taking over the Dallas franchise. He’ll serve as both head coach and GM of the team.
A former NFL head coach could reportedly be getting hired, too.
Former NFL coach Jim Haslett, who led the New Orleans Saints from 2000-05, could be in line for an XFL gig.
From XFL 2K:
Today Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) joined This is the XFL Show to discuss why people didn’t want to believe him about his report on Bob Stoops. As part of the discussion he mentioned they had signed Bob Stoops, Pep Hamilton and slipped in that Jim Haslett would also likely be signed as well. He did not mention which city it would be for.
Haslett has reportedly been talking to the XFL about a job, though it’s not official yet:
“They’ve been talking to Jim Haslett as well,” Allbright added.
Pep Hamilton in DC.
They've been talking to Jim Haslett as well.

Former Michigan Wolverines assistant coach Pep Hamilton is reportedly heading to the XFL, too. He’s left the Wolverines for a Washington, D.C. XFL job.
