Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops shot down any rumors he was leaving to become Notre Dame's next head coach.
"I intend to be at Oklahoma. Yes, that's what I intend to do," the Sooner coach said when specifically asked about the Notre Dame rumors. "I will never confirm or deny whether I talk or not talk to anybody, and I won't be interviewing for any jobs."
Asked for a little more clarity, Stoops said: "What I'm saying is I'm going to be Oklahoma next year, so I can't be at two places at once."
Notre Dame fired coach Charlie Weis Monday after five seasons. Stoops, as he's been after the Irish fired former coaches Bob Davie and Tyrone Willingham, was believed to be atop Notre Dame's wish list.
