    Breaking: Bob Stoops Retiring from Oklahoma

    Whoa...

    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 have yet to figure out why common sense and common courtesy are called common.

    Take a year off -- make some TV Money and then end up the new Head Coach where?

    I have to believe he's being forced out or is planning to take another gig. No way the "retirement" sticks.

    Crazy news though.

    Bruce Feldman tweeted a source said Stoops and OU's other OC have been grooming Lincoln Riley to take over for the past year. Maybe this has been in the works, but the timing is awful strange.

    That would certainly explain his seemed lack of interest in the Bama OC job...
