Mike Stoops out as Oklahoma's defensive coordinator

Mike Stoops out as Oklahoma's defensive coordinator

Mike Stoops appeared to be on borrowed time as Oklahomaa€™s defensive coordinator after a 48-45 loss to Texas last week.

Turns out, he had less than 48 hours.

Stoops was fired as OUa€™s defensive coordinator Sunday, as first reported by KREF radio's James Hale, the day after the Sooners hit rock-bottom defensively during Stoopsa€™ second and final stint with the school.

OU surrendered 501 total yards and 27 first downs to Texas a€” both season highs for the Longhorns a€” and suffered damage to its Big 12 championship and College Football Playoff hopes in the process.

It's unknown when OU coach Lincoln Riley will name a replacement. Assistant head coach Ruffin McNeill and defensive analyst Bob Diaco a€” who have both previously served as head coach and defensive coordinator a€” are viable choices to be named on an interim basis.A 

The Sooners have scored 48 and 45 points, respectively, in their two previous losses, the most distant one being a 54-48 setback in double overtime against Georgia in the 2017-18 Rose Bowl. That game got Stoops, brother of former OU head coach Bob Stoops, in hot water with fans.
