Since the announcement we’ve seen (and heard) a few interesting developments. First, Leavitt himself posted on Twitter that he was heading out west, then down to “SEC Country”. The timing seems right, but it could just be a coincidence.
On the road again. Heading out west for a few stops before heading down to SEC country. Been a whirlwind! Making my way toward seeing Mom
That tweet alone started a lot more speculation, but not for long. Shortly after, Greg Auman of The Athletic posted that Jim Leavitt had indeed spoken with the XFL for the position, but was not going to be the person announced on March 5th.
On Tuesday, XFL will announce its head coach for Tampa franchise, which launches in February 2020. Former USF coach Jim Leavitt talked to commissioner Oliver Luck about the job, but he isn't their choice.
Could this just be a smokescreen? Will Leavitt join the three other coaches already announced? We have nothing solid at this moment, but we at XFL2k are hearing a lot of rumors that contradicts Auman. Tuesday is just a few days away, so we may learn something new between now and then.
