The Associated Press reports the rumors of Oklahoma Sooners Head Coach Bob Stoops interviewing with the Browns is false. Tom Withers is said to have direct knowledge on the situation and said that Stoops is not a realistic candidate:
"It’s still possible the Browns will hire a college coach. Bob Stoops, though, isn’t the one. A person with direct knowledge of Cleveland’s search told The Associated Press that the Browns will not interview Oklahoma’s coach, who has deep Ohio roots. After his Sooners stunned Alabama in the Sugar Bowl last week, Stoops did nothing to dispel a report that said he had the “inside track” for the Browns’ job. But the person who spoke to the AP on Monday said the team is not pursuing him and that any reports saying so are “false.”"
