WVU O-line coach reportedly accepts OU offer

As part of several moves being made on Oklahoma’s coaching staff, the Sooners found themselves in need of an offensive line coach. Reported to be the frontrunner for that vacancy was West Virginia’s O-line coach, Bill Bedenbaugh.

According to at least one report from Mitch Vingle of the Charleston Gazette, that rumor will come to fruition. Footballscoop.com is also reporting the move and SoonerScoop had it first this week. Obviously, OU has not yet commented on the reports.

“I anticipate speaking with several candidates that I have identified for our coaching staff, but I have yet to interview any of those individuals,” Bob Stoops said in a statement yesterday.

Bedenbaugh has spent the past two seasons at WVU after coming over from Arizona, where he coached under current Sooners defensive coordinator Mike Stoops.

    Don’t let the door hit him in the ass on the way out.

    I realize he was recognized as a good recruiter. I’ll never forget Eddie George on national TV calling pass or run based upon the position of Quentin Spain’s feet.

    He didn’t notice that himself, the opponent did and the coach told him. That is on Bedenbaugh. After watching hours of film of his players he didn’t notice that.

    This has now been confirmed by WVU Athletic Director Oliver Luck in the Charleston Gazette.

    I’ll never forget … Chris Spielman … on national TV calling pass or run based upon the position of Quentin Spain’s feet.

    Did College Football Talk get a hold of this guy’s driver’s license picture, or what?

    Expect at least one more WVU coach to leave prior to the 2013 season. Either DeForest or Patterson. (Hopefully DeForest)

    From the photo it looks like he’s a tool.
