SEC OC reportedly 'top choice' for same position with Oklahoma Sooners
Oklahoma is reportedly getting close to making some moves to replace Lincoln Riley, who left Norman to take over at USC.
On Sunday morning, ESPN’s Chris Low reported that Clemson DC Brent Venables was the Sooners’ top choice for the head coaching vacancy and that a deal could be done before the calendar turns to Monday.
Interestingly, Low also reported that Ole Miss OC Jeff Lebby would be Venables’ top choice for the same position at Oklahoma:
Veteran Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables has emerged as the top target for the @OU_Football head coaching job, and the two sides could finalize a deal as early as today. Ole Miss’ Jeff Lebby is Venables’ top choice as offensive coordinator, sources tell ESPN.

Lebby’s offense at Ole Miss has become one of the best in the SEC under Lane Kiffin.
Would Lebby leave for Oklahoma? He could soon be in the mix for head coaching jobs of his own.
