In the leadup to the 2020 XFL season we saw the league announce their head coaches one by one. When it came to the DC Defenders, we saw Pep Hamilton come in to take the reigns for the franchise.
During his time with the Defenders in their short season, he led the team to a 3-2 record before COVID shuttered operations.
Since then, he has served as QB Coach for the Los Angeles Rams and most recently the Houston Texans.
Many XFL fans have been on the edges of their seats waiting for news after co-owner Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson promised news would be coming in about 2-3 weeks… over three weeks ago. Regardless, we know when the XFL plans on hitting the field again, so we expect that you’ll know their big plans sooner rather than later.
With the league expected to announce their broadcast partner and new teams/cities in the near future, fans are looking forward to when the XFL will be holding their showcases this summer. Naturally, before the combines the league will fill their vacant head coaching spots.
For those hoping we may see Pep Hamilton return to DC to lead the Defenders, it looks as if he’s secured a new spot.
The #Texans have promoted Pep Hamilton to offensive coordinator under new HC Lovie Smith. He stays in Houston, and will continue to help in the development of Davis Mills.
