“The progress made in our football program since Bob took the helm in 1999 is remarkable,” Boren said. “He has truly revived one of the great college football traditions, while adding his own enhancements, and elevating the profile and competition in the Big 12 Conference.”

Stoops is one of four Sooners football coaches to win 100 games and is eight games behind Barry Switzer as the all-time school leader in wins. Stoops is 99-23 in conference games and 81-5 in Norman.

“I appreciate the University’s commitment to our program and me,” Stoops said in the release. “Most coaches dream of working in the kind of situation that exists at Oklahoma, especially with leaders like President Boren and (athletic director) Joe Castiglione. We’re proud of what we have accomplished to this point and look forward to achieving a lot more.”
