XFL2k has learned that it is indeed not Jim Leavitt that will be taking the stage next week in Tampa Bay. We have discovered that Marc Trestman will be named the first Head Coach/GM of the XFL Tampa Bay franchise. The press conference takes place 11amEST March 5th, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay.
Trestman is a former NFL and CFL coach and is the only coach in Alouettes history to win back-to-back Grey Cups. We had originally speculated that it Jim Leavitt was up for the job, but there was a log of conflicting information. The news of Trestman does not comes as a shock, but it has been confirmed and we will see him next week at Raymond James Stadium.
