Berry Trammel of The Oklahoman was first to report, and multiple sources have confirmed that Oklahoma football head coach Bob Stoops is stepping down after 18 seasons at the helm. He will not coach the upcoming 2017 season.
The report states that 33-year-old offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley will take over for Stoops on an interim basis. Stoops will announce his decision to the team tomorrow.
Stoops’ impressive Oklahoma resume includes 10 Big 12 titles and the 2000 National Championship.
