“I’m very pleased to welcome these exceptional men and women to the XFL as we continue to build our teams’ business and coaching staff with the highest quality leaders. These individuals are credentialed professionals and bring immense football and operational experience to our League,” said Russ Brandon, President of the XFL. “We continue to make great strides in bringing forward a top-tier football operation with head coaches, assistant coaches and operations personnel that reflect some of the best that football has to offer from a diverse group of talented individuals. We are excited to bring all of this to bear for the benefit of the players we are scouting, which is going to result in some dynamic football when we get started in 2023.”
