IMO Tommy Condell is a more than adequate replacement as OC.

Head Coach position in the XFL should pay pretty well at least while it lasts, can't really blame him but the timing does suck.

Edit:
Just discovered XFL H.C. position is fixed at $500,000 USD and players capped at $250,000.  I guess they figured out paying one player 8 times more than another is not a good business model to follow.

Timing sucks for sure. Good on the ticats for having a HC already in place, and an in-house read OC. Huge turnover, but still likes a wel run, business as usual attitude there.

Jones will last a season in the XFL and will land somewhere else in the U.S.

I'll be interested to see what the Cats do. Their offense seemed built for June Jones with their small but fast receivers. How will it work with Condell?

Condell has little choice but to carry on with Jones game plan at this point.

So who's the new HC?  The OP says Condell is now OC.

Quick, someone get on the phone to Kent Austin!   Grin Grin

I wonder what catfan has to say.  I bet he's feeling blue.  Hammy was doing pretty well with Jones.  Banks sure came into his own with that regime.  It might all fall apart for HAM this year.

June wasn't even the head coach - Orlando Steinhauer is.  Ticats will be fine

Oops, thanks!  Egg on my face.  I knew that but had forgotten.  Non-WPG stuff does not command premium space in my grey matter.

Steinhauer eh... might have to rethink my E-division final standings prediction.

What are the odds that the XFL lasts a season? Hard to see them being any better than past incarnations of spring football.  I guess some millionaires/billionaires like to gamble with their fortunes!
