Oklahoma finalizing co-offensive coordinator replacements for Jeff Lebby, per report
Oklahoma has reportedly found their replacements at offensive coordinator for the departing Jeff Lebby.
The Sooners are in the “final stages” of hiring Seth Littrell and Joe Jon Finley as co-offensive coordinators, according to a report from SoonerScoop’s George Stoia.
After previous offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby left to take the head coach job at Mississippi State, the Sooners had to fill his spot.
Both new coordinators come as internal hires by Brent Venables. Littrell was listed as an offensive analyst for the Sooners in 2023, and Finley was listed as the tight ends coach for this past season. Finley has been on staff with the Sooners since 2021 and will be entering his 4th year in Norman. Littrell joined the Sooners staff for the first time in 2023.
Littrell, who grew up in the state of Oklahoma, attended and played football at Oklahoma from 1997-2000. Littrell was most recently the head coach at North Texas for 7 seasons where he held a 44-44 record over that time.
Littrell joined North Texas after spending 6 years as an offensive coordinator at 4 different schools. He brings a litany of offensive coordinator and play-calling experience to the Sooners and will hope recreate, and even improve on a top 5 scoring offense in college football this past season.
Oklahoma finished the 2023 season at 10-2 overall and 7-2 in Big 12 play, but will have to wait to see what their future is until next Sunday when bowl games are announced.
