I don't know, Thumper.  A list of the best offensive coordinators in America I do not have.

I'd be leery of Garrett Riley just because of the family connection.

I'm on another board where one of the posters has known Lebby for a long time and says he is a great guy, that the incident I described was just a stupid, boneheaded mistake.  But the  Art Briles connection still bothers me.

Whomever we hire as HFC will probably have his own ideas about whom he wants to fill that position.

May be an image of 1 person and text that says 'LIVE breakyourownnews BREAKING NEWS 10:19 H2 NEW HEAD COACH HIRED AT OU COACH KLEIN HAS BEEN NAMED NEW HEAD COACH AT OU.'

OU hired the Fonz?
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

his defense was very good this season at Clemson

just wonder why he would take the leap now as opposed to any other season

possibly the money being waved around

It's official.

As to why now, maybe it's because he's got a warm spot in his heart for OU and OU never has offered him the job of HFC until now.

It was a happy scene at Max Westheimer Field (Norman's airport) tonight.

He has had several HFC offers including Auburn earlier this year.  I was beginning to suspect he just preferred being a DC and it didn't hurt that he was the highest paid assistant in CFB.
I'm very optimistic for him but there are a lot of coaching slots to fill, starting with OC that are critical.

I'd like to see Joe (?) Brady (LSU 2019) as the OC, but I don't think it's going to be him.

What Brady did at LSU was awesome.  I haven't heard why the Panthers let him go.  I would be happy to see him at OU but I think it is going to be Lebby.

Muleshoe seems to be encountering trouble in Paradise.

Per Rivals (https://n.rivals.com/team_rankings/2023/all-teams/football), OU currently has the #11 recruiting class for 2023, but, out in talent-rich SoCal, with beaches, mountains, beautiful girls, plenty of weed, and plenty of NIL money, USC is at #21.

I don't think that the recruits he is signing will see him around if/when they graduate.
