Bob Stoops was the head coach of Oklahoma for 18 seasons from 1999-2016. During that time, Stoops compiled a 190-48 record and also won 9 bowl games. He also led the Sooners to the BCS Championship game in 2008, where they fell to the Florida Gators 24-14.

Stoops’ name continues to surface in job openings, as he also was listed as a potential candidate for the USC Trojans after their job opened up several weeks ago.

Bob Stoops is not currently employed by a team, but works as part of FOX’s college football coverage. His son Drake is a wide receiver for the Sooners. Also, his younger brother Mark, currently the head coach of Kentucky, also made the list with slightly better odds at 17/2.
