Sooners stay in-house for new offensive coordinators

OKLAHOMA QUARTERBACK JOSH HEUPEL PURSUED IN ORANGE BOWL

Bob Stoops didn’t have to look very far to find a replacement — or, technically, replacements — for Kevin Wilson, who was named last week as Indiana’s new head coach.

According to a press release issued by the school, Josh Heupel and Jay Norvell have been promoted to co-coordinator by the Oklahoma head coach.  Heupel will serve as the play caller beginning with the Fiesta Bowl against UConn.

“As has always been the case, our entire offensive staff will work together in game planning, but there needs to be one coach who calls the plays and Josh will have that responsibility,” Stoops said in a statement. “Josh has a good feel for the game and rhythm that we’ve been able to establish.

“This is a great way to maintain our current style and continuity. Our current style fits our personnel and allows us to remain balanced, something that is important to me.”

Wilson will stay on staff through the bowl game, and will serve as a position coach for the fullbacks and tight ends.

    I like this move. Heupel has done everything you could ask for in a home grown coach. I hope he does well as the play caller!
