Bob Stoops is going to step down as head coach of Oklahoma and retire, the coach announced Wednesday.

The Oklahoman’s Barry Tramel first reported on Wednesday that Stoops is stepping down. Offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley will take over as head coach.

Tramel says Stoops, 56, is expected to remain with the school in some position.

Reports say Stoops is not stepping down over a health matter.

Stoops has been the head coach at Oklahoma for 18 seasons. He has gone 190-48 and 9-9 in bowl games, and he won a national championship in 2000.
