OT: Bob Stoops retiring at OU
Big surprise. Lincoln Riley will be new coach. (Rumor from an OU friend)

Riley, at 33, is the youngest FBS HC.

Stoops just 57. I wonder if he just needs a break like Urban Meyer did a few years back, but then re-surfaces somewhere else in a year.

Just 33 years old and he gets the nod to be promoted to head coach of Oklahoma.

Talk about a dream come true...

I'm not surprised at all it was either resign now or get fired Sept 3rd.

Yep, that's what I thought. He did not want to risk being fired if he lost to UTEP in the opener. Yeah, let's say that's what it was.

If Riley turns out to be a good coach, OU will be set for a long time. If he doesn't work out, he could set the program back probably not to Iowa St. levels but certainly to a level that will take a few years to rebuild. I would say his biggest challenge will be getting top assistants that are 10years or more older than him join his staff.

Stoops was no longer a championship coach. He could win the big 12, but national titles was a different story. With that said, I doubt Riley will be better than him.

This was well coordinated. Stoops gets his last head line and the coach in waiting gets a full offseason without having to recruit immediately.
