I have learned from a very high-ranking official within the Oklahoma administration that Bob Stoops has turned down Florida's offer to fill their vacated head coaching position.
Stoops met with Florida Athletic Director Jeremy Foley this morning in Norman and all indications point to an offer being made by Foley.
Other sources now indicate that Foley has boarded an airplane headed for Denver where he will meet with Bronco Head Coach Mike Shanahan regarding the position at Florida.
At this time there has been no indication whether or not Stoops will hold a press conference or release a statement through the Oklahoma Sports Information Department. As soon as we get the details of how and when a potential announcement will be made we will report it right here.
