Is XFL Betting Legal?

As long as you place your bets at an online or brick and mortar sportsbook that is operating legally offshore or domestically, then yes, it is perfectly legal.  The sportsbooks you see on this page are all operating legally within the industry and are either independently licensed or are owned and operated by a parent company that holds licensing credentials.

So if you live in a state that has not yet legalized local sports betting, or you simply prefer the online betting options from international sportsbooks, you can place your bets at legitimate offshore sports betting sites without violating any state or federal gambling laws.  The exceptions are CT and WA, both of which have prohibited all forms of online gambling, and the state of NJ, which has convinced offshore sportsbooks to exit the NJ gambling market.

Tampa Bay Vipers Coaches

Head Coach/GM: Marc Trestman

Marc Trestman began coaching in 1981 when he accepted the position of quarterbacks coach at the University of Miami, making his return to FL something of a homecoming. In 1984, Trestman jumped to the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings as a running backs coach, and from there, he continued on to work with a number of NFL teams in various offensive coaching positions.

Trestman got his big break when he was named head coach of the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes (2008-2012), winning two Grey Cup championships. Then, in 2013, Trestman was named the head coach of the Chicago Bears, though he lasted just one season before an OC stint with the Ravens and another short run in the CFL with the Toronto Argonauts (where he won another Grey Cup).

With nearly forty years of coaching experience, Trestman is the perfect fit for Tampa Bay and is expected to compete for the XFL title for years to come. As one of the first wave of new XFL coaches, you can expect Trestman and his staff to install a winning culture from day one.

XFL Salaries

If you want to know how much XFL players make, it’s actually kind of complicated. That said, Tampa Bay Vipers players make the same base salaries as all other players on current XFL teams, though the amount varies by position and performance.

According to the league itself, the average XFL salary is $55,000 per player, though quarterbacks can make up to twice that, with other major skill positions settling somewhere in between. Also, players will receive additional money each week in the form of winner or roster bonuses, and position-based incentives can add to each player’s annual haul.

The maximum salary for an XFL head coach is $500,000 a year, though this is also contingent on a series of escalators and performance triggers.
