The Dallas Renegades, led by former Oklahoma Sooners coach Bob Stoops, will be among the teams taking the field when the XFL returns in February.

The league revealed the logos and names Wednesday for its eight teams, which will also include the Houston Roughnecks, Los Angeles Wildcats, New York Guardians, DC Defenders, St. Louis BattleHawks, Seattle Dragons and Tampa Bay Vipers.

The Renegades will play their home games at Globe Life Park in Arlington, the current home of the Texas Rangers.

The reveal was done during a presentation on the XFL website that was also on the ESPN and Fox Sports websites.

The league announced in 2017 that it was coming back after it went one season in 2001 before shutting down. The XFL recently signed former Oklahoma and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Landry Jones as its first player, and had a session in California with coaches to go over rules.

The inaugural XFL draft is set for October.
