Jason Kersey of The Athletic, who covers Oklahoma tweeted out yesterday that Sooners HC Lincoln Riley announced Bob Stoops would be a temporary assistant this week.
Seems as though COVID-19 has hit the staff in Norman, and since Stoops is what is called an “institutional staff member” if needed, he can serve as a coach.
Riley called upon his predecessor to help plan for Saturday’s game vs Baylor.
Stoops released a statement:
Stoops coached the Renegades to a 2-3 record in the shortened season, but the team showed a lot of grit, especially since injuries hurt the QB position.
It’s not yet been announced if Stoops will return to the XFL. When he stepped down at OU, many thought he was finished with coaching football.
When he was given power over the personnel, as well as the HC duties, any sort of retirement was over, and Stoops once again patrolled the sidelines.
Hopefully, he will again for the Renegades, who we just learned signed a new lease at Globe Life Park.
If things go according to he same timeline as last year, we should be hearing very soon who will be heading up the coaching staffs for he league.
