The XFL announced today that they will be holding a press conference at 1pm CST Thursday to announce their first head coach and general manager hires of the relaunch. This comes two months after announcing the eight inaugural teams that will begin play in 2020. The announcement will be streamed live on Twitter and on XFL.com.
The XFL will see teams in Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Washington D.C., and New York. Team names have not been announced yet, nor have any jerseys been revealed. This iteration of the XFL is a relaunch of the one year wonder from 2001, which folded due to low attendance and poor television ratings.
