Former Sooners Head Coach Bob Stoops To Be Honored During Oklahoma's Homecoming Weekend

Former Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops will be honored during homecoming weekend.

Bob Stoops and his wife, Carol, will be honored during Oklahoma's homecoming weekend this year according to an official release.

Per the release, "the Stoopses will be honored recipients at the OU Ring Ceremony scheduled for Friday, Oct. 27, and they also have been selected to serve as parade co-marshals for OU’s Homecoming Parade on Saturday, Oct. 28."

Stoops, who suddenly announced his retirement in June, is the winningest coach in OU school history, and in 18 seasons with the Sooners he led them to a national championship, 18 straight bowl berths and 10 Big 12 titles. He also coached two Heisman Trophy winners—Jason White and Sam Bradford.

“It is an honor for the University of Oklahoma to be able to pay tribute to Carol and Bob Stoops at Homecoming this year,” said OU President David L. Boren. “They have generously given of themselves in their service to the university and to the broader community. The Stoopses are worthy role models for our students and have left a lasting impact on the university.”

Stoops is currently serving as the special assistant to the athletic director at Oklahoma.
