Here Was Bob Stoops Reaction When Asked About His Brother's Firing From Oklahoma
Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports
When Bob Stoops stepped away from the Oklahoma head coaching job in 2017, his protege Lincoln Riley stepped in for him. This past weekend Riley fired Bob's brother Mike as the team's defensive coordinator. On Wednesday, Bob was asked about his brother's dismissal, per the Dallas Morning-News...

Asked about his successor, Lincoln Riley, firing his brother, Mike, after the Sooners’ 48-45 loss to Texas last week, Bob said, “You know it’s not for me to comment on. That wouldn’t be fair to Lincoln, wouldn’t be fair to Mike. That’s not my job anymore. So to have anything out there that I’ve got to say wouldn’t be right.”

Any reaction to the game?

“Again, you’re not gonna get me . . . . That’s gonna be blasted all over the place. I don’t have a comment on it.”

Thoughts about Texas?

“Again, I’m not gonna expound on the game or anything this year. It isn’t my place, and I’m gonna stick to what’s my place.”

Larry loves OU. I really get more OU coverage on the front page of TD than I do on some of my OU sites.
