Source: Bobby Jack Wright retiring

Another change is coming in Norman as sources confirm cornerbacks coach Bobby Jack Wright will retire from OU.

Oklahoma’s coaching changes weren’t done Monday. On the same day the Sooners hired Lincoln Riley to be the offensive coordinator, multiple sources confirm cornerbacks coach Bobby Jack Wright is going to retire.

NewsOK.com first reported Wright’s retiring Monday evening. It had been widely speculated this move was going to happen, but it was just a matter of when.

Wright has been there since the beginning of the Bob Stoops era. He has served in various roles in the program as recruiting coordinator, defensive ends coach, special teams coach and ends as the cornerbacks coach the last three seasons at OU.

Wright has played a huge role for OU in terms of recruiting Texas, especially in San Antonio where Wright is a familiar name with essentially every high school coach in the area.

Wright began coaching in 1973 and has also coached at Texas A&I, North Texas State and spent 12 seasons at Texas.

An official announcement is expected later this week.
