Chicken-Fried News: Say it ain’t so

After more than 50 years of coaching, Oklahoma cornerback coach Bobby Jack Wright is leaving OU for the lush fields of retirement — or possibly administrative work in the OU athletic department. However, before leaving his position, the man aired a bit of info about everything from Bob Stoops’ coarse inability to navigate regional airports to how recruitment has changed over the years.

Stoops, Wright said to Tulsa World’s OU Sports Extra, was supposed to meet him in Houston once but got off the plane in Dallas, thinking he had arrived at his final destination. This might provide some insight into the Sooners’ performance at the Russell Athletic Bowl.

We at the Gazette are going to miss the gregarious ramblings of a man who wasn’t afraid to talk to the press. We wish you luck, Mr. Wright.
