Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says he was surprised when reporters started asking whether he could be the next head coach of the Denver Broncos, and he says he knows absolutely nothing about the Denver vacancy:
"That's a rumor I haven't heard, and no one's contacted me about that so I don't know anything about it," Stoops said. "We're preparing for a national championship and that's all my focus.
"Obviously I'm not a candidate. I'm sure someone might have told me that other than you guys if I was."
Actually, that's not necessarily true. It's possible that Stoops is the preferred candidate of Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, but that Bowlen wants to wait until after Oklahoma plays Florida in the BCS title game before approaching him.
