NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport said Friday on NFL Network's "Around The League Live" that the Oklahoma Sooners coach could be a potential target as the team seeks to fill it head coach vacancy.
The interest might be mutual. Rapoport has been told Stoops is more open than ever to the idea of jumping to the NFL.
On Thursday, Stoops' Oklahoma team pulled off an upset victory over Alabama in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. The Youngstown, Ohio, native was asked about NFL rumors after the game.
Stoops has a 160-39 record at Oklahoma. He is the only college coach to win the Sugar, Orange, Rose and Fiesta Bowl. He received a contract extension this summer that takes him through the 2020 season.
