Steve Spurrier recruiting Bob Stoops to coach on his staff
Will Bob Stoops get back into coaching any point soon? If Steve Spurrier has his way, the answer would be yes.
This weekend is a big one for Stoops, who is having a bronze statue of his likeness unveiled before the Sooners’ spring game on Saturday. The former Oklahoma coach met with the media on Friday to talk about the honor and was asked some pertinent questions, such as whether he will return to coaching. He says that Spurrier has been recruiting him to join his staff.
Will Bob Stoops coach again?
Stoops, chuckling: “Coach Spurrier keeps nagging me about being his d-coordinator in that new league”

Last week it was announced that Spurrier would serve as the head coach for the Orlando franchise in the new Alliance of American Football league, which will debut next year.
Overall, the feeling is that Stoops won’t return to coaching yet but may do some media work. He still seems pretty invested in Oklahoma football.
As of now, Bob Stoops says he's still not interesting in coaching again. Doing tv/media was more of a "maybe" but says there's a lot of travel involved and he's got a lot of OU games to watch. #sooners
