Stoops keeping open mind about future of coaching staff; no new hires made yet

(Continued)

NORMAN —

“It has been a privilege to coach the last 14 seasons at my alma mater, an honor that few coaches in this business are afforded,” Shipp said. “It was a pleasure to compete with my teammates on Owen Field, and later, to work with a staff that helped so many talented student-athletes achieve their goals. I am particularly grateful for the many enduring relationships that were forged at the University of Oklahoma over the years.”

Kittle was a former college teammate of Stoops’ at Iowa. He arrived at OU in 2010 as the on-campus recruiting coordinator and spent the last two seasons as tackles and tight ends coach.

“It’s been a great blessing to work with Coach Stoops, our student-athletes and the entire staff at the University of Oklahoma,” Kittle said. “Our family wishes the Sooners the very best, and we’ll always have a fond place in our heart for the many individuals who touched us during our stay in Norman.”
