Jeff Capel has added Oronde Taliaferro to his coaching staff to fill the void left when Rod Barnes took the head coaching position at Georgia State. Taliaferro, who spent the last five seasons at the University of Arkansas, has long been rumored to be the guy Capel would hire. He is listed as one of the top 25 recruiters in the nation by Rivals.com and may even have some recruits on the hook as he heads to Norman.
The great thing about Taliaferro is that he not only already has recruiting ties in the state of Texas as well as Chicago but that he also has a proven track record of success everywhere he has been. This was a great hire and will be a key addition to the Sooner coaching staff.
