Bob Stoops appears to be thoroughly enjoying himself as the interim head coach of the Oklahoma Sooners. Ever since Lincoln Riley’s stunning departure for USC, Stoops has admirably stepped in and helped the program recruit, transition to Brent Venables, and prepare them for this week’s Alamo Bowl. Heck, he even is apparently letting players negotiate their curfew this week.
But even this is next level for Bob Stoops, who took a tongue-in-cheek question during his media availability and had fun with it. Stoops was asked if he would be open to a “tequila bath” instead of say, a Gatorade bath, if his team wins the Alamo Bowl. Specifically, he was asked about Rock N Roll tequila.
Stoops’ answer? Pure gold. “That’s be OK. What’s the administration going to do, fire me?”
Here’s the video.
Needless to say, retirement has done Bob Stoops some good in terms of his media presence. Or maybe it’s actually being a media member with FOX Sports, combined with knowing his coaching career is back to being over after this week, that is keeping him light hearted.
Regardless, we’re definitely here for it, and so is his son, Isaac.
So, who’s got the tequila?
