Want To Play Or Coach In The XFL? The League Is Now Taking Job Applications On LinkedIn!
If you live or want to live and work in the greater East Rutherford, Arlington, Houston, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Tampa, Seattle or Washington D.C. areas, the XFL is looking for a few good men and women. All you have to do to apply for a job position in the new/old football league is submit your application to the XFL on LinkedIn today! Seriously.
John Fox, Jim Caldwell, Ben McAdoo, Chuck Pagano, and Jack Del Rio, you too are also welcome to apply. Even you can still apply Hue Jackson, even though you’re currently filling the Dwight Schrute role for Marvin Lewis.
Oh, wait, Fox and Caldwell already have jobs with the XFL as “advisors.” My bad.
According to MSN.com…
Those interested in coaching, playing, or being employed as an agent in Vince McMahon’s football league can submit a job application through LinkedIn. Candidates must answer why they’re passionate about working for the XFL and provide links or information about their social media presence.
The applications don’t list a starting salary, but Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported in August that XFL commissioner Oliver Luck told NFL agents that “(e)xceptional players” will have the opportunity to earn more than $200,000 per season.
