Yeah I just saw that. Something must've happened behind the scenes like a health issue or family stuff. This is just out of left field. I wish Coach Stoops the best of luck in the future. He's been one of the best coaches Oklahoma's had over the years.

EDIT: Wow okay, make that the BEST coach in OU history. I thought Switzer had a better record.

He just said he wants to have a life. You don't really get to have much of a life as a football coach at a major program.

190 wins, 10 conference titles, only lost 9 home games in 18 seasons. The only head coach in the BCS era to win all 4 BCS bowls.

14-4 against Oklahoma State, 11-7 against Texas.

At first I was shocked when I heard Stoops was retiring. Is seemed to come from no where at a weird time but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense.

For the last few years he has looked like he has been more stressed than normal.

His dad died at age 54 coaching on the football field. Stoops is 56. Apparently Stoops has the same gene that caused his father problems and it's more prevalent in Stoops than in anyone else in his family. Stoops has also made statements that he doesn't want to be coaching when he is 60.

Stoops also has two sons that are going to be seniors in High School. Last year he drove to Tulsa on a Friday night to watch them play football...the game didn't get over until around midnight...and then he drove back to Norman, got up and coached the Bedlam game against Oklahoma State the next day.

I honestly think this is something that has probably been on his mind and when you add everything up, it's just the right time for him to step away. He is coming off a Big 12 title and Sugar Bowl victory and the program is in great shape. He is leaving the team in a great spot to continue to succeed.

Stoops deserves to enjoy life now. He has put in work and done enough. I'm not as upset about this as some other people around here. It's almost been like someone has died. Let the man enjoy his life now.
