Remember When WMU Head Coach Tim Lester Played In the XFL? Remember the XFL?
Subsequent to his standout career at quarterback for Western Michigan University, Tim Lester took some snaps in the XFL before returning to Kalamazoo to coach the Broncos.
Following the departure of P.J. Fleck to Minnesota, Western Michigan University Football has brought back former quarterback Tim Lester as the head coach for 2017. After his years at Western (1996-1999), Lester played professionally for the Chicago Enforcers of the XFL in 2001. His Wikipedia page says he played in four games, completing 40 of 76 passes for 554 yards with four touchdowns and five interceptions. After the season the league folded.
Lester also spent time in the Arena Football League in 2001 with the Nashville Kats and Carolina Cobras; and the Arena Football League 2 in 2002 with the Memphis Xplorers before moving behind the bench and signing as head coach for Western Michigan University.

Lester's Chicago Enforcers played the second game in XFL history visiting the Orlando Rage. WWE commentators Jim Ross and Jerry "The King" Lawler have the call.
Lester is introduced at about 5:30 into the video and JR asks The King, "What do you know about Western Michigan?" Lawler replies, "not much except it's probably cold there."
