Oklahoma Sooners Coach Stoops Pledges to Combat Racism

In an interview with ESPN’s Gene Wojciechowski that aired on ESPN on Tuesday, Oklahoma Sooners football coach Bob Stoops spoke about his team’s stand against racism a few weeks after the video of the Oklahoma University fraternity members participating in a racist chant leaked.

Stoops stated that he believed his players and the rest of the university are capable of bringing the problem to light and even helping stop it.

“This was caught here,” he said. “I think [OU’s players] realize it’s everywhere. It’s around the country. We happen to have it; let’s try to do something with it and try to effect change. And I’m proud of the way they’ve done it.

He also added, “So maybe we were the ones to bring it more to light. Because it isn’t just here in Oklahoma. It’s around the country. And it needs to be stopped. And we have a strong enough voice, maybe, to step up and start having it end.”
