First big news of 2017. Bob Stoops retires effective immediately. Shocked

Very surprising, especially since we're just a little over two months away from the season starting.

Such weird timing. That usually meant something was going on behind the scenes which contributed to the decision.

First impression I got as well.

Kirk Ferentz is now the longest tenured HC in college football. Stoops wanted the Iowa job back in '98 (so did every Iowa fan under the sun) after Fry resigned. Stoops had an offer from OU on the table, but they agreed, at his request, to give Stoops 24 hrs to hear back from Iowa, whom he had already interviewed with. Iowa committed to speaking with Ferentz and this would delay any decision, so Stoops took the OU job and Iowa hired Ferentz the next day.
Is what is, but often wonder what would have been and how Stoops would have faired. He was easily the hottest commodity out there at the time and has deep roots with the Iowa program. Really wouldn't be surprised if his name pops up in some capacity with program down the road.
