Jason Kersey of The Oklahoman speculated that Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops might not be keen on possibly taking the soon-to-be-vacant coaching job at Florida because he doesn't want to face off against brother Mark.
We're way out in Speculation Land with this, but when Oklahoma played Florida State in 2010 (when brother Mark Stoops was a defensive coordinator for the Seminoles), Oklahoma Bob said, "I’ve never been so conflicted and miserable about winning a game." He went on to say that brother coaching against brother is "not natural." While this bit of family sentimentalism is adorable, back in October it was reported that Florida wanted to make a run at Bobby. That's not going to change. Stoops has had a rough go of it with the Sooners over the last month and regardless of what he says, he'll probably hear Florida out, if only to see how big of a dump truck filled with money Stoops might be able to work from the Gators.

Sports Illustrated writers Pete Thamel and Thayer Evans expect Florida AD Jeremy Foley to make another run at Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops.

"But there’s nothing to indicate Stoops will take the job this time," the two write. Hugh Freeze is another name brought up, but Foley reportedly has concerns about the NCAA looking into Ole Miss' athletic department. Rich Rodriguez is another coach Thamel and Evans bring up.

Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops is on the verge of receiving a new contract that would pay him $5 million per season, according to CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler.

Stoops did reportedly draw some interest from the NFL this offseason, namely the Cleveland Browns, which could be one reason for a new deal to be made. Stoops' new figures put him in the Kevin Sumlin and Charlie Strong range. Fowler notes the revised contract will go before the school's board of regents on Wednesday.

Gil Brandt, the Cowboys' Vice President of player personnel from 1960-1988, said he would hire Bob Stoops if he ran an NFL franchise and were looking for a college coach.

"I think a lot of college programs are now understanding the passing game and the pro game better than ever before. That said, there are a number of college coaches -- like Chip Kelly, who left Oregon to have success with the Philadelphia Eagles -- who can come in and be successful in the NFL," Brandt wrote. "The person I would pick is Bob Stoops of Oklahoma. He understands the total picture, starting with how an offseason program needs to be run, what to do on offense and defense, and the importance of special teams. Stoops would be the person I would try to hire." The NFL has been interested in Stoops for years, but a marriage has never materialized. Most recently, Stoops was reportedly a finalist for Cleveland's job over the winter.

The University of Oklahoma will ask regents next month to authorize a renovation of Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

It's unclear how much the project will cost, because the Sooners haven't yet solicited bids. The renovation reportedly would include the connection of the lower bowl, improved and added suites, and additional fan amenities such as concession stands and restrooms. The proposal is not expected to substantially increase Memorial Stadium's capacity of 82,000. The school would like to finish off the renovation prior to the 2016 season.
Mon, May 26, 2014 04:50:00 PM's Ian Rapoport reports Oklahoma's Bob Stoops is one of the top two candidates for the Browns' head coach opening.

Rapoport adds the team is very interested in Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase, but they would have to wait to interview him. The other choice is Josh McDaniels. Cleveland is apparently intrigued with Stoops because of his managerial style and ability to build a solid staff.
