Sources: FSU nearing deal with Bob Stoops to become next head football coach

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Bob Stoops could become the next head coach of Florida State football in the near future, according to sources. We've heard the announcement could come as early as the end of this week or early next week, and that a deal is really close to being done.

Stoops coached at Oklahoma from 1999 to 2016, winning a National Championship in 2000, a 13-2 win over Florida State. Stoops won ten Big 12 Championship titles in his time in Norman, and was a six time Big 12 Coach of the Year. He retired from coaching in June of 2017, but has since returned to coaching, as in February of 2019, it was announced Stoops would be the head coach and general manager of the Dallas Renegades in the XFL.

Along with Stoops taking over as head coach, sources said that Kendal Briles will remain on staff as offensive coordinator, while Jim Leavitt would be retained as defensive coordinator. The source went on to say that with keeping Briles on staff as offensive coordinator, it could turn into a head coach in waiting role. Stoops is 59, would want to groom a successor before he retires.

This is a developing story. We will update this story as we learn more information.

Firing a coach within 2 years makes your school toxic, right?  Hiring a proven coach would be unpossible.

Then Lincoln Riley to the renegades, mark Stoops to the sooners? Serious though, wouldn't be surprised if he goes to FSU

@jdhorn92 must be the new porta potty girl with this from yesterday 

What I’m hearing is Bob Stoops as head coach. He’ll bring Venables with hiim as DC, with the idea that Venables assumes the position in a year or two. Briles will stay on as  OC if they can’t get Joe Brady from LSU.

either that or Allison reads surly

Lol.  You can’t convince me this doesn’t scare Mack.  He will never win anything of significance there but he will continue to own butterteeth.  Congrats?   I guess the 5M is nice too.

Wow.  This sounds like something from the aggy coaching search.  “I’m hearing Bob Stoops.  He’ll bring in Urban Meyer and Nick Saban as assistants if they can’t get Jimmy Johnson and Bill Belichick.”

hire MIke for DC , give up 578 yards a game, sweet buyout of $17 mil after 2 years. Profit for the Stoops family.

Are you suggesting that perhaps CDC should fire Mensa and hire Stoops?  Is that really what you want?

Mike Stoops will be FSU's new motivational speaker that "lives in a van down by the river"

I'd say poor Mack but he's used to losing to Florida State.

Yep, this is a good move for FSU and for Stoops.  I am jealous for all involved.  They're in a better position to compete with Clemson than we are with Baylor.

I hear George Seifert is looking at houses in DFW. Word on the street is that he’s the next Dallas XFL coach.

It’s a Vic Mackey thread. Water rises and falls to its own level, and the guy is a dogwhistle for chromosome-deficient mouth breathers.

no fucking chance this happens

Why not?

FSU has a big brand name in a high school football hotbed, alumni with deep pockets, and a history of questionable recruiting and keeping kids eligible no matter what (academic fraud, Jameis Winston, etc).  

They'll let Stoops run amok and they'll help him cover up the minor stuff like a player breaking a girl's face or kidnapping his girlfriend with a screwdriver to her throat or beating his baby mama or collecting money from a fake job, etc.

This is like Ramsay Bolton and Cersei Lannister locking eyes across a crowded room and smiling seductively...

The longer growing season and cheap labor would make FSU very attractive to an entrepreneur and hardcore connoisseur with a voracious appetite for fresh, um, produce.

Stoops quit at Oklahoma because he was independently wealthy and tired of sucking up to 17-yr olds. That would still be true of any college job he takes.

My first thought is no way, but then I have no idea what Stoops is doing coaching in the XFL, so I have to assume he's still into cashing paychecks.

He retired really suddenly and the official story is that he was done and finally found a guy in Riley that they wanted to keep around.  
 
I always wondered if it was more the latter than anything else.
