Oklahoma Chooses Next OC

With the departure of Jeff Lebby to Starkville for the head coaching job at Mississippi State, the Oklahoma Sooners have been on the hunt for a new offensive coordinator for 2024. The Sooners decided to go with two options, promoting both Seth Littrell and Joe Jon Finley to co-offensive coordinators.

Both of these guys have ties to Oklahoma that go back many years, all the way to their playing days. Littrell played running back at Oklahoma from 1997-2000 and was a part of the 2000 national championship winning team. Finley was a tight end for the Sooners from 2004-2007 and was a part of three Big 12 championship squads.

Littrell and Finley both also established themselves outside of Norman in terms of coaching. Finley has spent time coaching at schools like Missouri, Texas A&M, and Ole Miss to name a few. Littrell has quite the resume as well, having been the offensive coordinator at schools such as Arizona, Indiana, and North Carolina. He also spent six years from 2016-2022 as the head coach at North Texas.

Although the Sooners won 10 games this season, it still seemed like there needed to be a change on offense for them to take the next step forward. We will have to wait a whole offseason to see if this move will pay off and move them forward, or backfire and do the complete opposite.
