XFL Coaches getting called back

Post by MarkNelson » Mon Aug 24, 2020 10:39 am

NewsHub reported that coaches would be called back by the end of this week.

In wondering about this, I reached out to some coaches, and was told they have not heard anything. But, they are anxious to get some news, and (obviously) ready to go.

This is a fluid situation, and I hope we can track the ongoing story in this thread.

NewsHub has backed off on their exclusive, if you read their article they've updated it to say "Sources say some initial conversations may take place over the next several weeks but nothing is set in stone for next week. There are still many other shoes to drop before the league can start adding personnel."

I still believe a Head Coach leaked something out, but now the league is quashing it. We will watch this situation and add info here as it is received.

For the league to call coaches back they would have to made a decision on when to bring the league back to life. Coach rehires will be done to prepare for a draft, and to bring teams back to some sort of training camps.

I hope they are rehiring coaches. It will mean that games are returning sooner than later.

I don't see how they can make a decision on coaches until they decide when they're playing.

You are so right about that. I hope the decision of when to get on the field will be soon.

If the decision is to play in a bubble next spring they need to put their coaching staffs back together soon. I just don’t know how some of head coaches contracts get resolved, since they have lawsuits with the league. Do the new owners just reinstate their contract and pay them what they are owed? Probably I guess.

Agreed, but they should have had an plan in place before the bid. Albeit not full fleshed out but they knew they had to hit the ground running and many of the coaches etc are avail.

I don't think, at this point, that it's as much a firm decision as it is assessing who wants to come back and who doesn't. Though, if they're going to try and go ahead with a 2021 season, they'll have to get those coaches in line soon.

The report that the coaches would be called back this week seems to have dried up and blown away in the wind. Crap news.

I agree the league restart date needs to be known first.

I wonder if the new owners already had a restart plan and date in place when they made their bid?
