The XFL officially kicked off two weeks ago, giving football fans something to watch while the NFL takes a few months off. After folding in just one season last time, it seems like the XFL could be here for a while.

Unfortunately, it sounds like one current XFL head coach might not be long for his team. According to a report from Danny Jones of the The Other League and XFL podcast, one team has already complained about its head coach.

Jones reported the Tampa Bay Vipers, who sit 0-2 on the season, are turning on head coach Marc Trestman. The Vipers have scored just 12 points in total after two games, despite having an "offensive-minded" head coach.

The players, per the report, made it clear Trestman needs to change the way he runs his offense. The comments from his team are troubling at best, especially considering the league has only been around for a few weeks.

"He's too f***ing stubborn to change. S***, just admit defeat and change. He's gonna get my a** cut," one player allegedly said.

The Vipers have struggled to put points on the board and are in serious danger of falling to 0-3.

Tampa Bay faces one of the league's toughest teams, the 2-0 Houston Roughnecks this coming weekend.

Can Trestman finally put together a solid offensive game plan?
