Sounds good to me .
Good for Josh.
Great. Now I'm gonna have to crack heads on all the usual hater/morons who are gonna start hating on Josh January 1 when all his plays don't go for a TD.
I wonder if this is just the Fiesta bowl or for next year too.
I already want him fired. None of his play calls have ever worked!
This is gonna make SF.com so much more interesting.
...but you're an allsome crackhead!
Wow! I didn't expect Heupel to be the main play caller. I consider that great news!

NORMAN, Okla. – Oklahoma Head Football Coach Bob Stoops announced today that Josh Heupel and Jay Norvell have been promoted to co-offensive coordinators on the Sooner football staff and that Heupel will have play-calling responsibilities.
The moves come after offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson accepted the head coaching position at Indiana. Wilson will remain with the team through the Fiesta Bowl, but will serve only as a position coach with tight ends and fullbacks, the same positions he has coached since 2006.
“As has always been the case, our entire offensive staff will work together in game planning, but there needs to be one coach who calls the plays and Josh will have that responsibility,” Stoops said. “Josh has a good feel for the game and rhythm that we’ve been able to establish.
“This is a great way to maintain our current style and continuity. Our current style fits our personnel and allows us to remain balanced, something that is important to me.”
Heupel, who quarterbacked the Sooners to the 2000 national championship, is in his sixth season at OU. He joined the full-time staff as quarterbacks coach in 2005 prior to the Holiday Bowl win over Oregon. He served as a graduate assistant at OU from 2003-05 before spending one season as tight ends coach at Arizona.
Norvell, has been the receivers coach and assistant offensive coordinator. He came to Oklahoma in 2008. He previously served as offensive coordinator at Nebraska (2004-06) and UCLA (2007).
Stoops said he has no time-table in filling the staff vacancy created by Wilson’s departure.
OU SID Report
Do they both move up the the booth?
The receivers started playing a lot better after Norvell moved back down to the sidelines to get in their faces.
Does Landry suffer from not having his position coach on the sidelines? Does he have to talk on the phone now? Are we screwed?!!
THE NINJA FORMATION LIVES!
