Oklahoma is reportedly filling another vacancy on its coaching staff.
Per GoBlueWolverine.com and Jake Trotter of ESPN, Michigan defensive line coach Jerry Montgomery is heading to Oklahoma in a similar capacity. Montgomery has spent the past two seasons with the Wolverines and has a connection to Bob Stoops through the University of Iowa.
An official announcement hasn’t been made yet — one is expected early this week — but Michigan defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins did tweet on Saturday “Want to wish Coach Montgomery and his family luck at Oklahoma. He taught me a lot and I’ll never forget the talks we had.”
Montgomery would replace Jackie Shipp, who will not return for the 2013 season. Oklahoma recently added offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh from West Virginia.
