Brent Venables might not be as electric of a hire as Kliff Kingsbury (or even Lincoln Riley for that matter). But for OU to keep their run of prominence going – while moving from the BIG 12 to the SEC, they’re going to have to get tougher.

Not only would Venables bring that edge, but he also have familiarity with the program, boosters, and recruiting in the area.

Don’t be surprised if Brent Venables get named Oklahoma’s next coach very soon.
