OU source: Nothing to suggest Stoops considering leaving for Florida
A University of Oklahoma administrator who has been kept abreast of Bob Stoops’ dealings in the past said Saturday afternoon he hasn’t heard anything to implicate the Sooners’ coach is considering leaving for Florida.
GatorCountry.com, a Web site that covers Florida athletics, reported earlier Saturday that multiple different sources had confirmed Stoops was “finalizing a contract to become Florida’s next coach” and replace Urban Meyer, who announced his resignation Wednesday after six seasons and two national championships.
The OU source, however, countered that Stoops is much more concerned about naming an offensive coordinator than talking with Florida.
Stoops is expected to announce who will replace departed coordinator Kevin Wilson within the week, and is believed to be deciding between wide receivers coach Jay Norvell and quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel.
