Caleb Williams, Oklahoma’s quarterback, said earlier yesterday that he would be entering the transfer portal. However, he did not rule out returning home to Oklahoma.
Lincoln Riley, the Sooners’ head coach, was hired by the University of Southern California in November. Oklahoma then hired Brent Venables, a Clemson defensive coordinator, to replace him.
Venables hired Jeff Lebby from UCF. Lebby was Gabriel’s offensive coordinator in 2019, Gabriel’s first season for the Bulls, to fill the same role at Oklahoma.
