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.
