Stoops to get a pay bump

Stoops to get a pay bump

Posted: Updated:
NORMAN - It looks like Oklahoma head football coach Bob Stoops will have a few more dollars in his pocket.  The OU Board of Regents will discuss raising the salary of the  Sooner head coach to $5 million next season.  The raise would move Stoops salary in line with Charlie Strong of Texas and Kevin Sumlin at Texas A&M.  Both make $5 million.  Strong has yet to coach a game at Texas.
By bumping Stoops salary up the regents are moving up his salary to the 2016 level where Stoops was scheduled to make $5 million.
