Report: Bob Stoops Retiring After 18 Years as Oklahoma Football Head Coach

According to The Oklahoman, Bob Stoops will be stepping down as head coach after 18 years at the helm of Oklahoma football.

According to Berry Tramel, a source said offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley will replace Stoops as head coach. Apparently, Stoops will remain with Oklahoma “in some capacity.”

“Bob got to do it in his way,” the source told The Oklahoman. “Doesn’t get any better than that.”

Bruce Feldman reported that Riley had been groomed for the job for some time:

 

Stoops went 190-48 in his tenure at Oklahoma, and 9-9 in bowl games. He won a national championship in 2000. The Sooners notched 10 Big 12 titles under Stoops. He is the winningest coach in school history.

This breaking news will be updated as the story develops.
