Former college football coach Bob Stoops left the coaching ranks in June 2017 when he decided to retire from the sport. His predecessor, Lincoln Riley, decided to fire his brother, Mike, on Sunday night after several years as being the Oklahoma Sooners defensive coordinator.
Those two Stoops are not the only two Stoops left in college football. Most people know about Mark Stoops, who has been the Kentucky Wildcats head coach since 2013.
Yet, there is also another Stoops in coaching. It’s his older brother Ron Stoops Jr., who is the Special Teams Coordinator at his alma mater, Youngstown State.
The Wildcats head coach and his team is off to one of its best starts in program history with a 5-1 mark. They suffered their first loss of the season when they lost to the Texas A&M Aggies.
At 5-1, the Lexington, Kentucky school has a chance to surpass its best record under the 51-year-old Stoops. During the 2016 and 2017 seasons, they went 7-6 for their best record during his tenure.
The youngest of the Stoop brothers is 31-17 as the Wildcats head coach. Both years during the 7-6 record, the Wildcats lost in their respective Bowl games.
Stoops Jr. is in his eighth seasons with the Penguins. He also helps out with the linebackers for head coach Bo Pelini’s coaching staff.
