Yes that would be a huge blow. I won't assume anything until it's official. Williams may decide to give staying at OU a go and try to build a legacy there under a new system.
Agreed, until he's gone there is no point in assuming. But I enjoy imagining the possibilities!

Rumors going around that it’s going to be Venables. Could be announced shortly.
They are basing it on a snapchat from Venables kids doing the horns down....but already determined the post was from Oct. Not saying its impossible, but their reasoning is a bit of a stretch right now.

I just can't see them going with a rookie HC. Not a big enough splash to compensate for Riley bailing out on them. They're in big-time damage control mode now. This recruiting class will all but evaporate if they don't make a homerun hire.

Kinda surprised the rumors of 'dump truck of money to Saban's door' haven't started up yet.

Sports animal reporting Campbell’s buyout is $27 million.
And in six years he's won eight more games than he's lost. I think he's a good coach, but I also think he's overrated.
Ya think!!??? The media honeymoon for him has required him to win at least one unexpected game/year.

Course he’ll lose 3 or 4 they shouldn’t, but hey, he’s a genius.

Yes, I'm hearing that from multiple people and now a press conference scheduled for 3pm to announce the hire. A solid get for OU if true.
Its not a terrible hire but definitely not the 'splash' they would like us all to believe. Honestly the bigger splash would have been stealing Leach from Miss State. At least he is a proven winner as a HC and would light up the scoreboard.

And may have held on to/got back some of thos 5 and 4 star recruits. Any QB would love to play in a Leach offense.
