Michigan Thursday: Big Game Bob Steps Down

In a surprise announcement yesterday, Bob Stoops decided to retire after 18 years as Oklahoma's head coach.   Bob said this decision was not health related that it's just perfect timing for him to move on.   The 33 year old offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley is going to take over for Bob.  Lincoln has interviewed for other jobs the last couple years, including Houston. 

I wonder if we will see Stoops pop up again like Urban Meyer did when OSU hired him.   He played at Iowa right?  I'm just saying.....................

  • We are expected to hear in the next 24 hours or so where Miami transfer Sunny Odogwu will play next year.  His decision is down to Michigan and UCLA.  “Those two schools, you can't get any better than having those head coaches that have experience in the NFL,” said Hailemariam (Sunny's HS coach). “The offensive coordinator, offensive line coach, the medical team, athletic training staff (are all) unbelievable. Those places are extremely tremendous places for Sunny to finish out his career and he's just trying to find out what's the best for him ultimately."

  • Reports are that OSU has offered their basketball job to Creighton’s Greg McDermott.

  • Here is a good Q&A from USA Today-Draft Wire and the best defensive line coach in the world, Greg Mattison.

  • More info on David Dawson leaving Iowa State, it seems he is retiring from football and has a family situation right now.

  • Per Steve Lornez:  Michigan is recruiting hard Apopka (Fla.) four-star offensive tackle William Barnes who attended the FAU camp this week and is looking to take a visit up to A2.   William is friends with Michigan QB commit Joe Milton.
