Throwback Tulsa: Bob Stoops' retires as OU football coach; Lincoln Riley promoted on this day in 2017

Four years ago today, on June 7, 2017, Bob Stoops announced his retirement as Oklahoma Sooners head football coach. Why?

“I’d rather not be totally specific,” . “Obviously, personal things are personal. All of it goes into your decision. Not any one thing.”

He showed little emotion, never shedding a tear as he officially said goodbye to the best job he ever had, the one in which he won 190 games, 10 Big 12 titles and a national championship.

Take a look at photos from his 2017 retirement press conference here.
