Oklahoma University head football coach Bob Stoops was the victim of a burglary early Wednesday morning.
According to Jake Trotter of ESPN, the Stoops' home was burglarized at 3:30 a.m. The family was in the home and sleeping at the time of the break-in. Among the items reported stolen was a vehicle.
Trotter also tweeted out the unfortunate news:
According to Trotter's report, the family discovered the burglary at the home they just moved into last year and alerted the authorities at around 8:30 a.m. The case is being considered a first-degree burglary per Lieutenant Eric Lehenbauer of the Norman Police Department via ESPN.
Lehenbauer also said that he and his department have leads that they are following and no one was harmed during the event.
Stoops and his wife have three children—a daughter, Mackenzie and two twin sons, Drake and Isaac.
The coach is a highly revered figure in Oklahoma history. He'll be entering his 15th season as the Sooners head coach this year and won the school's most recent national championship in 2000.
He has also led the Sooners to eight Big 12 championships, including a share of the title in 2012. He has a career record of 149-37 and a bowl record of 7-7. His 149 wins stands just eight wins behind Barry Switzer for most wins in Sooner football history.
That's a mark that he should eclipse this season. The Sooners have won at least eight games in every season since his debut 7-5 season as coach in 1999.
