FOX has reportedly hired former Oklahoma Sooners head coach Bob Stoops to replace Urban Meyer on Big Noon Kickoff...

When Meyer returned to coaching, Fox Sports made a list of the most successful coaches in recent history. Of the five coaches (Nick Saban, Meyer, Stoops, Dabo Swinney, Pete Carroll), only Stoops was not going to be on a sideline in the fall.

In 2019, Big Noon Kickoff made some waves in its first year, becoming a legitimate challenge to ESPN’s College GameDay’s longtime supremacy. With the pandemic, the competition between the two shows was more muted in 2020.


“I’m looking forward to joining such an incredibly talented team on FOX Sports’ BIG NOON KICKOFF,” Stoops said in a statement released by FOX Sports, via “Over the past two seasons, FOX has assembled an insightful, engaging and entertaining pregame show that has become destination viewing for today’s college football fan, and I’m excited to be part of it beginning this fall.”

Urban left the show to coach the Jacksonville Jaguars.

He retired way too soon. Stoops had another 5 or 6 years in him if he went elsewhere. He was burnt out.

I like Stoops. Another good pickup by Big Noon which has replaced Gameday as the go to.

Much better show than espn cgd. Recently it got to a point which I couldn't watch game day unless they were at an LSU game. And then it was hard to watch it.

He'll have a good regular show but at the end he's gonna blow it.
