That collective sigh you just heard was from those of us who follow recruiting and our sigh of relief that Jay Norvell, who is in the midst of putting together a stellar WR class, has turned down advances and will return to Oklahoma. Carey Murdock of SoonerScoop was able to confirm that Norvell did indeed interview with Wisconsin on Wednesday, but has removed his name from consideration for their vacant offensive coordinator position and chosen to stay at Oklahoma.

Good news for OU fans who get to keep an excellent coach and outstanding recruiter.
