Former Tennessee Titans inside linebackers coach Jim Haslett was named one of the eight head coaches for the once-again rebooted XFL league back in April, but now we know which team he will lead.
According to multiple reports, Haslett has been assigned the XFL’s Seattle franchise. Here’s a look the other seven head coaches and which teams they will reportedly lead.
Houston: Wade Phillips
Dallas: Bob Stoops
San Antonio: Hines Ward
Washington, D.C.: Reggie Barlow
Las Vegas: Rod Woodson
Orlando: Terrell Buckley
St. Louis: Anthony Becht
Haslett joined the Titans as their inside linebackers coach in 2020, a position he held through the 2021 campaign.
Prior to his stint in Tennessee, Haslett served as the defensive coordinator for four NFL teams, including the New Orleans Saints, Pittsburgh Steelers, St. Louis Rams and Washington Football Team (2010-14).
Haslett has been a head coach twice in the NFL, also, serving as the head coach of the Saints from 2000-05, where he won AP Coach of the Year in 2000, and he served as the interim head coach of the Rams in 2008.
This is the second attempted reboot of the league. The last came in 2020, but the season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the league did not return in 2021. The latest relaunch is slated for 2023.
