The Oklahoma-Tulsa game, in which Tulsa posted a mammoth 603 yards of offense against one of the Big 12’s most elite defenses, got a surprise visit – a visit addressed by a reporter for SoonerSports.com during a Monday press conference with Bob Stoops.
The visitor spotted on the sidelines during the OU-Tulsa game, Jeff Lebby, currently serves as a running backs coach, as well as a passing game coordinator, for Baylor.
Although Lebby – Art Briles’ son-in-law – once played for Oklahoma, Bob Stoops wasn’t all too impressed with Lebby’s attendance on the sidelines, saying, “it needs to be reported and dealt with.”
J.D. Runnels, a former Sooners fullback chimed in on the situation concerning Baylor’s offensive assistant, who just so happened to be on Oklahoma’s roster in the early-2000s:
Regardless of possibly pending sanctions against Lebby by the NCAA, Art Briles reassured the 2007 graduate of Oklahoma that he’s unlikely to be penalized for showing up to his alma mater’s game.

Briles says he will not discipline Lebby. In the hands of compliance but it “was in (Briles’) opinion unethical.”
