This comes from out of nowhere.
Bob Stoops, one of the three coaching giants of Oklahoma’s century-long football excellence, plans to tell his team Wednesday that he will retire after 18 seasons as the Sooner head coach.
An OU source said offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley will take over as head coach.
It is expected that Stoops will remain with the university in some capacity.
I know Riley is well thought of as an OC, but that’s quite a leap for a major program like Oklahoma. Interesting transition coming, to say the least…
