The XFL won’t start playing for another year, but it officially has its second head coach and general manager.

Pep Hamilton was introduced today as the head coach and G.M. of the as-yet unnamed Washington franchise. He joins Dallas coach and G.M. Bob Stoops as XFL coaches.

“I’m excited to join the XFL and lead the team in Washington, a city with which I have a lifelong attachment,” Hamilton said in a statement. “I appreciate the confidence Vince McMahon and Oliver Luck have in me, providing an opportunity to be the head coach and placing the football operations of their Washington team in my hands. We plan to put together a terrific, hard-working staff, and a great football team for fans in and around our nation’s capital.”

Hamilton has been on the staff of the Browns, Colts, Bears, 49ers and Jets, as well as Michigan, Stanford and Howard University. This is his first head coaching job.

  1. They have to take a shot at Snyder and the controversy with the team name. And they have to be red, white and blue like the Wiz, Capitals and Nats.

  2. Scraping the bottom of the barrel for coaches & GMs. Not a good start. This guy has never been a head coach, so they make him that and GM. Brilliant.

  3. Lol, safe to say the Washington franchise won’t be very good. The XFL and AAF should form one league and then they just might have enough resources to have a chance competing with the NFL.

  4. If this league steals kids from college campuses before they’re NFL/AAF eligible, I won’t watch one game. That’s just greed. These kids would end up on the streets after they get used.

  5. The NFL dominates and enslaves the players in its league. I’m just happy there will be new leagues and hopefully the new leagues will compete with THEM.
    Maybe the new leagues can do it RIGHT.
