The rumors of Bill Bedenbaugh being a top candidate for the offensive line position open at Oklahoma, appear to have legs according to Post-Gazette sources.
Bedenbaugh worked with Sooners defensive coordinator Mike Stoops at Arizona for several years so the connection makes sense.
Oklahoma just lost O-line coach James Patton, (he was fired according to the Oklahoman) and Bedenbaugh’s name has surfaced as a top candidate to replace him.
Unclear how quickly this one will play out.
One Oklahoma media outlet - SoonerScoop.com - is reporting a deal has been reached, but that has not been independently confirmed.
Bedenbaugh, who is well regarded as a coach and recruiter, helped land several top tier prospects in the team’s class of 2013 that signed last week.
He helped land arguably the team’s most high profile recruit in Ohio WR Shelton Gibson, expected to play slot receiver, the position vacated by Tavon Austin.
