A man who pleaded guilty to burglarizing the home of Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops has been sentenced to nine months in jail and given a 10-year suspended sentence.

The Norman Transcript reports that 22-year-old Corey McCarty was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty in September to burglary, larceny and unauthorized use of a credit card.

Investigators say McCarty and a juvenile broke into Stoops' home while he, his wife and three children slept and stole cash, a phone, credit cards, keys and a vehicle.


Neither Stoops nor his wife appeared for the sentencing but submitted a statement saying their ''lives changed forever'' after waking up to find that their home had been broken into while they slept.
