NORMAN — Bob Stoops doesn’t plan to interject in the Oklahoma coaching hire.
But if Joe Castiglione needs him again, Stoops will be there to lend a word of advice on any candidates — even if those candidates might be some of Stoops’ close friends.
“I got a lot of friends,” Stoops said Monday. “A lot of friends I’d never hire.”
Retirement has been good to Stoops, who stepped away from pregame shows and tequila temporarily and laughed and joked and gestured and actually got pretty serious when talking about the program into which he’s put more than 20 years.
