XFL Announces Offensive And Defensive Coordinators

The XFL is back again (again!).

The controversial football league is set to be re-reborn in 2022 and features some big name head coaches that will lead its teams. After revealing its head coaches in April, the league announced its list of offensive and defensive coordinators on Thursday.

The list of coordinators features a number of coaches that fans will recognize. There’s former Hawaii and SMU head coach June Jones. Longtime Michigan defensive coordinator and NFL linebackers coach Jim Hermmann will join the league. As will for Florida head coach Ron Zook.

But one name in particular seemed to catch the eye of football fans across Twitter.

Bountygate Orchestrator Gregg Williams To Join XFL

Gregg Williams is a polarizing figure. The veteran defensive coordinator has had a ton of success in the NFL coaching a number of different teams. Though he’s most popular for a pair of other stories.

Most notably, Williams was suspended by the NFL for leading the New Orleans’ Saints bountygate scheme where players were offered bonuses to injury the opposing team’s best players.

Williams was also the star of the show when the Cleveland Browns participated in the HBO series “Hard Knocks” during his stint as the team’s defensive coordinator.

Now Williams is back on the sidelines, albeit in a different league, and fans are taking notice.

Williams will call the defense for the team formerly known as the DC Defenders. For better or worse it figures to be must-see TV.
