My, what a awkward last couple days its been for Sooner Nation. Those of you who were screaming of wanting change, well you got it. With James Patton out as of yesterday, apparently the Sooners have also cut ties with DT coach Jackie Shipp.
They hired West Virginia o-line coach, Bill Bedenbaugh to replace Patton, but as of right now, obviously, since it just
happened, no word on who will replace Shipp. The only thing I can think of that would actually cause them to replace Shipp is that they are actually moving to a 3-4 defense, where they have been running the 4-3. They need to bring in a guy who can coach it.
Don’t know much about Bedenbaugh? Well, was once a coach at Texas Tech, who is very familiar with the spread. He joined the Arizona Wildcats coaching staff in 2007, so familiarity with Mike Stoops is already there. He then went to West Virginia to work under Dana Holgorsen.
Bedenbaugh is as intense as they come. Just type his name in on YouTube and you will see what I’m talking about.
We will see what happens. Still need to bring in a coach to replace Shipp, then is that it? Let’s hope so.
