    Hell Kliff Kingsbury got fired at his alma mater and got an NFL HC job.

    All it takes is one owner.

    If all Jerry wants is to "keep control", he can do that by keeping the red headed puppet. Garrett gladly plays "puppet" to maintain that big salary Jerry pays him.

    This guy reminds me of Garrett so much. In the midst of a crushing loss and he is out there clapping. Lol.

    I think it's safe to say Riley will be back in Norman next year. No way he goes out like that.

    If what he's already claimed, he does seem to have at least half a brain. Recently, when asked if he'd consider taking a head coaching job in the NFL he stated that he doesn't think that he would. He also said he's happy where he is. Whether all that is actually true or not remains to be seen. It's a fact that he's making $6,000,000 per year with Oklahoma. That's one factor in his decision, aside from his stated satisfaction with his current situation.

    The Skins would be a good place for him to take his Big 12 game

    The fact that Riley is a hot item means he has leverage. Why would he want to start his NFL career hobbled by coaches who aren't his guys and a clear lack of authority?

    One of the prime guys to stay is Moore. But he'll look like Boy Genius Head Coach in Waiting 2, the Electric Boogaloo. The new HC has to have authority to dump all coaches, or he'll be Wade 2, Yet Another HC in Name Only.

    Moore can only stay if the new HC has the authority to fire him. Which is too bad, because the new HC probably *should* fire him as a detriment to his authority.

    Riley's Sooners only gave up 63 points and 693 total yards. Yikes!

    Urban lost 31-0 to Clemson in the semifinals in 2016. Does this disqualify him also?

    No but this is a what-have-you-done-lately league. That was 3 years ago....Meyers had not expressed any desire for NFL. Sorry P but you're talking apples and oranges (lol),
