Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops' family is unharmed after a burglary at their Norman home early Wednesday morning.

Norman police said "a vehicle and other items" were stolen, and an investigation is ongoing. Several members of the family were home at the time of the burglary, but no one was aware of the incident and no one was harmed.

Stoops was in Wichita, Kan., at an OU Club event with Sooners quarterback Blake Bell on Wednesday but did not mention the burglary in interviews with the media.

The Stoops family moved into the new north Norman home last year. According to the Sooners' coach, the house is located about a mile from where a tornado ripped through central Oklahoma last month.

After the incident, you might remember that Stoops joined other volunteers in cleaning up the wreckage. According to a school official, if took "about 30 minutes" for Stoops -- who did not inform the athletic department of his initiative -- to be noticed by fellow workers.
