    Brent Venables to WV?

    Who else wants to leave OU right now? Seems like a revolving door. Venables has been offered the DC job at WV.

    @DaveSittler , Oklahoma sources are saying #WVU has offered Brent Venables the DC job.

    Venables/Holgerson could make for a pretty tough football team.

    Not too surprising with Mike back in the fold.

    Re: Brent Venables to WV?

    I have never been a huge Venables fan. It almost seems like any success the OU defense has had was despite Venebles considering the talent and it really hasn't been the same since Stoops left... It will be really interesting to see how tough OU gets with Stoops back at DC.

    This. You name your bro co-def coordinator, coming off a "down year" and the writing is pretty much on the wall.

    Re: Brent Venables to WV?

    A lot of OU fans were really getting antsy about Venables so I'm not surprised. Go look at Landthieves, they seem to hate the guy.

    It's funny because BV was a hot name in HC searches a few years ago.

    Stoops is the most over rated coach in football.

    Year after year, top recruting classes. A string of losses in BCS bowls. The only NC was with recruiting classes that were already in place. He won the NC in 2000. He got the job in 1999. Since 2000, no more NCs.

    I always wondered why OU paid him more and more and didnt get the big wins.

    Maybe there is something brewing in Norman.

    Re: Brent Venables to WV?

    Venables has always been a week link on that staff in my opinion. I also think athletic directors know that and they are not giving him a chance to run a program. Every other coordinator at OU has got a head coaching job at some point. Some got fired. Venables has never even came close.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Brent Venables to WV?

    I could see Venables wanting to get out of Stoops' shadow to eventually get a chance at a HC spot. No matter how good the OU defense is, Stoops is going to get all the credit. And with the younger Stoops on board, Venables is going to get even less credit for any success. Probably a good move for him is he wants to be a HC.

    Venables would either call a great game, or make you wonder why he was employed. Much like the late Tom Herman here. This is no real loss for OU. I expect them to be fine.

    He did just get demoted. Being a good asst at OU doesnt mean you are a good coach, just ask Chuck Long.
