The Oklahoma Sooners have had a legacy of legendary coaches in the 117-year history of the program.

Four different coaches have amassed over 100 wins in their OU careers, more than any other university. 

Bennie Owen and Bud Wilkinson were the first two coaches to achieve tremendous success with the Sooners, making Oklahoma a household name and a power in college football.

Barry Switzer was promoted to head coach in 1973 and made the Oklahoma program what it is today.

Since 1999, Bob Stoops has roamed the sidelines for OU, demanding the same respect and fear Switzer did while creating his own 100-win legacy.

In his 13 seasons leading the Sooners, Stoops has a 139-34 record, including seven conference championships and the 2000 National Championship.

Stoops is a legend in Norman already as he continues to make his name as one of the best coaches in the nation.

Here are a few reasons Stoops is in a league of his own.
