Ex-Sooners QB and co-OC Josh Heupel not returning

The Oklahoma football season didn’t go as well as most expected and now it seems coach Bob Stoops is doing something about it.

Stoops has a press conference scheduled for Tuesday morning and its expected he will make a number of staff changes.

Co-offensive coordinator Josh Heupel will not be returning. Jay Norvell, the team’s other offensive coordinator, will also not be returning.

The Sooners averaged 36.4 points per game this season, but were not good on offense against Baylor in a loss and then flopped against Clemson in the Russell Athletic Bowl, losing 40-6.

Heupel quarterbacked the Sooners to the national title in 2000. He was the quarterback coach for Sam Bradford and Landry Jones. He was a graduate assistant at OU in 2004, left to go to Arizona for a season and then returned to OU in 2006. Heupel has been the co-offensive coordinator the past four seasons.
