The coaching dominoes continue to fall.
As first reported by Seth Davis on Twitter, Jeff Capel has been fired by Oklahoma.
As recently as last week, Capel was confident that he would return to the Sooners next season. “I plan on being back. I don’t get into the speculation stuff,” Capel told the Dallas Morning News.
Oklahoma has struggled the past two seasons, going just 27-36 since Blake Griffin led the Sooners to the Elite Eight in 2009. In Capel’s five seasons in Norman, he has reached the NCAA tournament twice
Marquette head coach Buzz Williams, who has also been mentioned with job openings at Arkansas and Texas Tech, will certainly be on the short list of candidates for Oklahoma.
