Oklahoma Players, Recruits React To Bob Stoops' Retirement

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.
