XFL names head coach for Los Angeles franchise

The seventh of the XFL's eight head coaches is reportedly on board.

According to Arash Markazi of the Los Angeles Times, Winston Moss will lead the Los Angeles franchise.

Moss played for the Los Angeles Raiders in the 1990s and spent the past 13 years coaching linebackers for the Green Bay Packers, eventually rising to associate head coach. Moss was not retained after head coach Mike McCarthy was fired mid-season in 2018.

Moss will also serve as the club's general manager, according to the LA Times.

With Moss reportedly aboard, only the Houston franchise still lacks a head coach. Head coaches already on board are: Bob Stoops (Dallas), Kevin Gilbride (New York), Jonathan Hayes (St. Louis), Jim Zorn (Seattle), Marc Trestman (Tampa Bay) and Pep Hamilton (Washington, DC).

The XFL on Monday announced its television schedule, which will see the bulk of games played on FOX, ABC or ESPN. The league begins play on Feb. 8.
