Oklahoma's Riley faces high expectations in first year
August 11, 2017
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Lincoln Riley has taken over for longtime Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops, yet little has changed about Sooner football.
As usual, Oklahoma is expected to make a run at Big 12 and national titles.
"It's not anything that needs to be said," Riley said. "As a coach, I felt it the first time I walked in the door here. I felt it when I came to interview. You just know about the history, you know about the expectations, and I've hit on it a lot. I'm more focused on the great opportunity that we all have and what you can accomplish here when you do it the right way."
