The Oklahoma Sooners football program is a college football team that represents the University of Oklahoma. The team has had 21 head coaches since organized football began in 1895 with the nickname Sooners. The Sooners have played in more than 1,100 games during its 113 seasons. In those seasons, eight coaches have led the Sooners to postseason bowl games: Tom Stidham, Jim Tatum, Bud Wilkinson, Gomer Jones, Chuck Fairbanks, Barry Switzer, Gary Gibbs, and Bob Stoops. Eight coaches have won conference championships with the Sooners: Bennie Owen, Stidham, Dewey Luster, Tatum, Wilkinson, Fairbanks, Switzer, and Stoops. Wilkinson, Switzer and Stoops have also won national championships with the Sooners. Owen is the all-time leader in games coached and years coached, while Switzer is the all-time leader in wins and winning percentage. John Harts is, in terms of winning percentage, the worst coach the Sooners have had as he lost the only game he coached. John Blake has the lowest winning percentage of those who have coached more than one game with .353.

Of the 21 Sooner coaches, Owen, Lawrence Jones, Tatum, Wilkinson, and Switzer have been inducted in the College Football Hall of Fame. Wilkinson, Switzer, and Stoops have each received National Coach of the Year honors from at least one organization. The current coach is Bob Stoops, who was hired in December 1998.[1]

NotesEdit

  1. A running total of the number of coaches of the Sooners. Thus, any coach who has two or more separate terms as head coach is counted only once.
  2. Oklahoma did not join a conference until 1915.[2]
  3. Overtime rules in college football were introduced in 1996, making ties impossible in the period since.[3]
  4. When computing the win–loss percentage, a tie counts as half a win and half a loss.[4]
