The alternative football league, set to launch in 2020, has confirmed just one coach so far: Former Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops will act as head coach and general manager for the XFL’s Dallas team.

Zorn hasn’t been tied to any particular team in the report, though it’s fair to speculate Seattle could be a top contender. Zorn, who lives in Washington, was the starting quarterback for the Seahawks’ first eight seasons and was inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor in 1991. He returned to Seattle as quarterbacks coach from 2001-07, and was the head coach for Washington in the NFL for the 2008 and 2009 seasons.

Seattle’s XFL team will play at CenturyLink Field, the home stadium for the the NFL’s Seahawks.
