Twitter went crazy following the report of Bob Stoops' retirement.
In a total shocker, reports surfaced that Bob Stoops would be retiring after 18 seasons Oklahoma's head football coach at about 3 p.m. E.T. on Wednesday. At that point, Stoops hadn't even had an opportunity to address his own players—which he was scheduled to do at 3:30. But once the reports came to light, the news dominated Sports Twitter.
Both current players and recruits as well as former players chimed in:
4-star Oklahoma commit TJ Pledger:
Texas LB Malik Jefferson:
Former Oklahoma OL Gabe Okard:
Former Oklahoma DT Du'Vonta Lampkin:
Former Oklahoma DL Dust Dvoracek:
Assistant coach Lincoln Riley is expected to take over head coaching duties for the Sooners.
