Former Oklahoma Sooners head coach Bob Stoops has returned to the school on Tuesday. He returned to help current head coach Lincoln Riley.

He’s being asked to assist the coaching staff during the coronavirus pandemic. He retired in June 2017.

The Sooners are dealing with problems with their coaching staff due to the coronavirus. Oklahoma is expected to play against the Baylor Bears on Saturday.

“Actually, we brought Coach Stoops out of retirement today,” Riley said. “He was on the field and coached with us today. It was great to have him out there. It was great. It’s nice. It’s been kind of in our hip pocket this whole team. If we had any staff member that fell off, we’ve got a Hall of Famer sitting on the bench. That’s a pretty good bench when you can call that guy up.

“More than that, how much he cares about this program. I don’t think there’s anything he wouldn’t do. It was great to have him out there today. It was awesome. Our kids were excited to see him, all of us were excited to see him. I think he had some fun as well.”

The 60-year-old Stoops is 190-48 as a college football head coach from 1999 through 2016 with the Sooners. He returned to coaching earlier this year as the XFL’s Dallas Renegades head coach.

In the XFL, he went 2-3 before the league was shut down due to the coronavirus.
