Earlier we learned that June Jones was leaving the CFL for the opportunity to be both Head Coach and General Manager of the XFL Houston franchise. We are now learning that Brian Michael Cooper will be joining the league as Team President.

Cooper previously was president of the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, which was the Houston Rockets affiliate in the NBA’s G-League. He has also worked in executive roles at Rice University and Dish Network.

According to Fox 26, it seems that we may have a press conference in Houston this week to officially announce both.

UPDATE: We have just learned that the press conference will take place May 20th at TDECU Stadium.
