Oklahoma approves extensions for Bob Stoops, others

The Oklahoma Sooners were one of the best teams in the country during the 2015 college football season and they look to be that again in 2016. Head coach Bob Stoops has gotten exactly what he deserves as he was given an extension through the 2021 season.

According to Derek Peterson of OU Daily, the school’s Board of Regents approved an extension for Stoops through the 2021 season while giving offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley and defensive coordinator Mike Stoops extensions through the 2018 season. The two assistants will both make nearly $900,000 per year.

Bob Stoops has been a part of the Sooners’ program since the 1999 season and he has been one of the most successful coaches in that span. He has led Oklahoma to a 179-46 record, a bowl appearance in every season, nine Big 12 championships and a national championship in 2000.

The Sooners have one of the best coaching staffs in the country today especially after Riley won the Broyles Award for the top assistant coach last year.
