Kevin Wilson Staying Put – Josh Heupel Maybe Not So Much

via <a href=""></a>

-UPDATE 9:20 PM-

Minnesota hired Detroit Lions quarterbacks coach Jeff Horton as offensive coordinator this evening.


Wednesday Louisiana Tech hired Arizona offensive coordinator Sonny Dykes which ended rumors that Oklahoma offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson was heading to Ruston. Thursday East Carolina hired former Texas Tech defensive coordinator and interim head coach Ruffin McNeil which ended the rumors of Wilson heading to Raleigh. By all accounts it appears that the guy who engineered the most potent offensive attack in the history of college football is staying in Norman, at least for another year. However, quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel may be a bit of a different story.

Rumors are that Heupel is on top of Mike Stoops' list to replace Dykes at Arizona. Heupel isn't a stranger to the desert. He was working on Mike Stoops' staff before coming back to Oklahoma as the quarterbacks coach.

Another place Heupel is familiar with is the Twin Cities where he flew to for an interview with the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Wednesday. Minnesota head coach, Tim Brewster, is looking to replace his offensive coordinator after Jedd Fisch bolted to join Pete Carroll's staff in Seattle. Heupel interviewed for the same job in Minnesota last year.
