Oklahoma has given coach Mike Stoops a three-year contract that will pay him $600,000 annually to be their defensive coordinator and he'll have a familiar face helping him. The Sooners also announced that Tim Kish -- Stoops' former defensive coordinator at Arizona, who succeeded him as interim coach -- would be the new linebackers coach. Head coach Bob Stoops said in a statement...

"We've been together before exchanging ideas and his coaching philosophy has many similarities to what we've been doing at Oklahoma. I feel very confident about Tim and I feel that his arrival, along with Mike, will be a seamless transition for both our coaching staff and players as we look to build on the success we've already accomplished at Oklahoma,"

"Tim is also a great fit as a tireless recruiter who has a strong reputation in the nation's southwest and west and will be a valuable asset for our program in that regard."
