    Always wondered if little brother was a stipulated holdover. But guess the timing of everything basically tied Riley to the entire coaching staff anyways. Wonder if he’ll give his old HC Ruffin a call.

    Edit: Didn't know Ruffin was already on the staff, promoted to Interim DC this morning.

    Well duh.

    The main OU coaching staff change after the season will be Lincoln Riley leaving for the NFL.

    As what? NFL teams aren't hiring a 35-year old head coach with no NFL experience at all (player or coach or anything). And he's not leaving OU to be an NFL coordinator.

    What a strange chapter of Doug Meacham's career. When he took that job, which was a surprised in itself, he was one of the hottest names in coaching. The worst case scenario was always him getting swept into the morass of Kansas football and it seems like that was the case.

    Ya remember thinking TCU had an embarrassment of riches with Meacham/Cumbie as Co-OCs while UT was rolling with Shawn Watson. Him leaving for KU was definitely one of more stranger moves, it'll be interesting to see where he pops up.

    That's a really short leash (~2.5 years) for Jinks, but BG has pretty high expectations for their head coach. I guess that makes some sense when you consider that three of their previous four head coaches (Urban Meyer, Dave Clawson, Dino Babers) left because they won enough games there to end up in better jobs.
