XFL team names for 2020
Dallas Renegades Houston Roughnecks Los Angeles Wildcats
New York Guardians St. Louis BattleHawks Seattle Dragons
Tampa Bay Vipers D.C. Defenders
The XFL Teams
Coach/GM: Bob Stoops
Stadium: Globe Life Park (Arlington, Texas)
Stoops will return to coaching after retiring from Oklahoma in 2016 with a 190-48 record. Dallas hired Hal Mumme, one of the founders of the "Air Raid" offense, as its offensive coordinator.
President: Brian Michael Cooper
Coach/GM: June Jones
Stadium: TDECU Stadium (Houston, Texas)
Jones served as wide receivers coach for the Houston Gamblers in the USFL in 1984. He has professional coaching stints in the USFL, CFL and NFL on his resume, and he will bring that worldly experience to the franchise.
Los Angeles Wildcats
President: Heather Brooks Karatz
Coach/GM: Winston Moss
Stadium: Dignity Health Sports Park (Carson, Cailf.)
Los Angeles is one of the two returning XFL markets, and Moss, a former Raiders linebacker, takes over as the head coach after almost two decades as an assistant in the NFL.
New York Guardians
President: Janet Such
Coach/GM: Kevin Gilbride
Stadium: MetLife Stadium (East Rutherford, N.J.)
New York is the other city that had an original XFL franchise, and it gives the league one of two major markets on the East Coast. Gilbride was an assistant for the Giants from 2004-13. He was part of two Super Bowl-championship teams.
St. Louis BattleHawks
Coach/GM: Jonathan Hayes
Stadium: The Dome at America's Center (St. Louis, Mo.)
St. Louis gets back into professional football after watching the Rams leave for Los Angeles. Hayes played tight end for the Steelers and Chiefs before a long stint as the Bengals tight ends coach from 2003-18.
President: Ryan Gutafson
Coach/GM: Jim Zorn
Stadium: CenturyLink Field (Seattle, Wash.)
The Seahawks have a decided home-field advantage. Will this Seattle franchise enjoy the same feeling? Zorn played quarterback for Seattle from 1976-84 and returned as an offensive assistant before a head-coaching stint with the Redskins.
Tampa Bay Vipers
Coach/GM: Marc Trestman
Stadium: Raymond James Stadium (Tampa, Fla.)
The Tampa Bay market had success with the USFL and Arena football, and this will be another chance. Trestman won three Grey Cups as the head coach in Montreal before a two-year stint with the Chicago Bears.
President: Erik Moses
Coach/GM: Pep Hamilton
Stadium: Audi Field (Washington, D.C.)
Washington did not have a franchise in the original XFL, but it did have a USFL team that enjoyed success at the professional level. That was also during the Redskins' heyday. Hamilton last served as offensive coordinator at Michigan from 2017-18.
