- Stoops wanted to leave program in great shape | News OK, NORMAN — Bob Stoops proclaimed himself a spiritual person Wednesday. He also made a joke about his good looks. And turned all high-school graduationy by saying, “Wow, where did 18 years go?” And channeled Gary Cooper by saying, “I feel like I've been absolutely the luckiest, most fortunate guy in the world.”
Funny how a guy loosens up when he's no longer on the clock.
Stoops retired — the University of Oklahoma's word — Wednesday after 18 1/2 seasons of a third golden age of Sooner football. And he talked abstractly about why. Even chose Proverbs over The Byrds as his source.
“The Bible says, ‘To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven,'” Stoops said.
