Jonathon Hayes officially named Head Coach/GM of XFL St. Louis franchise

XFL St Louis taking shape, Hayes starts building his staff

Yesterday we finally got official word from the XFL that June Jones would be taking the reigns for XFL Houston.

Today the official Twitter account of XFL St. Louis wanted to be part of the fun by announcing some new hires of their own. Jon Hayes has filled some important roles for his team with Jay Hayes as Defensive Coordinator, Jeff Bauer as Football Ops Manager and Brian Braswell as Offensive Line Coach.

Jay Hayes is Coach Hayes brother, who served as a defensive line coach for the Cincinnati Bengals and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Braswell also worked with the Bengals as assistant offensive live-quality control coach. It seems that Hayes is bringing in people that are close to him and that he has worked with in the past. I like the hires, and look forward to seeing this team build out further.
