The XFL is set to return, and it’s got some big news. The upstart football league has announced that the coaching staff for all eight teams scheduled to play in the 2023 season, as well as other positions, have been filled. XFL President Russ Brandon had the following to say in one go: Press release,

“We are excited to welcome these incredible football minds to the XFL as we continue to build each team’s staff with best-in-class professionals who help us build our league from the ground up and provide an exciting opportunity for fans.” , will help deliver a dynamic football experience. We expect each of these to be a key component in the growth and successful execution of our 2023 season.”

As most wrestling fans are well aware, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson along with his ex-wife and longtime business partner Danny Garcia and Redbird Capital recently purchased the XFL. The American Football League was once owned by former WWE CEO and chairman Vince McMahon, who started the league in 2001. The venture quickly failed due to poor ticket sales and declining TV ratings. The XFL was revived for the 2020 season by McMahon, but issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic prevented its relaunch only five weeks into the season.

The 2023 XFL season will begin on February 18, 2023, just one week after Super Bowl LVII. Back in May, XFL struck an exclusive deal with The Walt Disney Company and ESPN that will last until 2027. For the duration of the agreement, XFL games will be broadcast live on ABC, ESPN Network and FX.
