Last quote by Bob Stoops

The good thing with coach Riley, it's not like he's a guy from somewhere else. We've been working together the last few years. It's not like he's a stranger coming in ... so there's a lot of familiarity with everybody. Being around isn't a distraction and I'm not getting in anybody's way at all.feedback

All the things he really shows and demonstrates on a daily basis. All the characteristics necessary to be a great leader and to be a successful head coach. He's a motivator, he's detailed, incredibly bright in putting together his game plans and his schemes, his play calling, his feel for the game, and I think probably the biggest thing I've noticed from day one is his ability to relate to the players.feedback

I'm not sad at all. To everything, there is a season. It's time, and that's OK. I feel more grateful and appreciative and blessed that I had 18 1/2 years doing this with great people, great fan base, an incredible, legendary school, that I got this opportunity. It's been a great ride. I'm happy about it. I'm more happy about that than I am sad that this day is here. It went fast.feedback

I really don't have a plan exactly what I'm going to do. It's a little bit frightening, but I'm really a spiritual person, and I believe until you open yourself up to something, you don't know what the opportunities are that can come to you. So we'll see what can flow my way. The time is now because Lincoln Riley will provide a seamless transition as the new head coach, capitalizing on an excellent staff that is already in place and providing familiarity and confidence for our players. Now is simply the ideal time for me and our program to make this transition.feedback

How do you win them all if you're just worried about this one? Really! Because in my mind, truly, you preach that you have to be invested in every game.... You get to thinking it doesn't send the totally right message. I truly believe you're never too high or low. That way you have a chance to play at about the same level. We don't count on being too jacked up. I just truly believe that only goes so far.feedback
