The statement below was released by Oklahoma Head Coach Bob Stoops on the University's official web site late this afternoon regarding the rumors of his candidacy for the opening at the University of Florida.

"I have great respect for the people at Florida and a lot of good memories from my time there, but to end the speculation that is ongoing, I want to make it clear that I have no interest in the position that is currently available there. It is a privilege to be the head coach at Oklahoma and I am fully concentrating on having the best season we can have, and in building the strongest program we can build."
