Lincoln Riley’s departure from Oklahoma didn’t go very well. Not only were fans disappointed, but one particular Oklahoma alum was particularly angry at how Riley handled his decision to leave the team and go to the USC.
Dede Westbrook, a former Sooners wide receiver and winner of the 2016 Billetnikov Award, complained to Riley when it was true that the player knew his move from an online report, not the coach himself.
“I don’t believe in everything on social media, but if it’s true that coaches are told about not notifying players and they know how the world has found it, it’s hell. It’s a BOGUS like that, “Westbrook tweeted. People / family in terrible places! Preach honesty, but don’t live by it! “
Westbrook was a Sooners player when Riley was still the offensive coordinator of the team.
During his introductory press conference to the USC, Riley said he first learned of his interest in the program. Saturday night, the two agreed by Sunday.. NS The news was first reported Sunday at 3:28 pm ET. If Riley’s timeline was accurate, it was difficult for him to tell all the players his departure before the first report.
Nevertheless, as the carousel continues to spin, Sooners finds a shortage of head coaches.
