Bob Stoops tight-lipped on brother's firing from Oklahoma

Bob Stoops has no interest in stirring the pot at Oklahoma after his brother, Mike, was fired as the Sooners' defensive coordinator.

"You know, it's not for me to comment on," the former head coach said Wednesday, according to Kevin Sherrington of the Dallas Morning News. "That wouldn't be fair to (head coach) Lincoln (Riley), wouldn't be fair to Mike. That's not my job anymore. So to have anything out there that I've got to say wouldn't be right."

Stoops hired his brother at Oklahoma in 2012, and the two worked together up until the head coach's sudden retirement in the summer of 2017.

His former offensive coordinator, Riley, delivered Stoops' brother the pink slip Sunday on the heels of a disastrous outing against Texas. Oklahoma ranks 96th in the country in total defense this season, and 79th in scoring defense.

"Again, I'm not gonna expound on the game or anything this year," Stoops added when asked specifically about the Texas debacle that saw the Longhorns explode for 48 points. "It isn't my place, and I'm gonna stick to what's my place."

Stoops led Oklahoma for 18 seasons, guiding the program to 10 conference championships and one national title.
