Joe Castiglione May Have to Break Precedent With Oklahoma Hire

Joe Castiglione May Have to Break Precedent With Oklahoma Hire

Joe Castiglione has a massive decision on his hands.

Lincoln Riley left the Sooners high and dry, and with a move to the SEC looming, Oklahoma is in need of a new head coach.

Castiglione obviously made the right call in 1999 during his first search as an athletic director when he hired then Florida defensive coordinator Bob Stoops, and again he struck gold when he elevated Riley from offensive coordinator to head coach in 2017.

But there was no real coaching search in 2017, and college football is a completely different animal than it was last time Castiglione was in the head coaching market.
