Vegas Vipers Head Coach Rod Woodson And XFL Mutually Agree To Part Ways

ARLINGTON, TEXAS (June 11, 2023) – The XFL announced that the League and Vegas Vipers head coach Rod Woodson have mutually agreed to part ways.

“We want to thank Rod for his hard work and commitment to the Vipers and the League last season,” said XFL President Russ Brandon. “During Rod’s time with the team, the players had an incredible opportunity to learn and benefit from his experience. He left an indelible mark on all the coaches, staff, and players. We wish Rod and his family all the best in their future pursuits.”

“After speaking with my family and members of the football operations team, we decided it was in our mutual interest for me to step away from the team,” said Woodson. “I would like to thank everyone at the League and wish them continued success as they enter season two.”

The League will begin the search process immediately and provide information at the appropriate time.
