So, in case you hadn’t noticed, the folks with Sellout Crowd, the pioneering sports media brand based in Oklahoma City, launched our website, video shows and podcasts on Friday morning, teaming up with amazing sports writers, broadcasters and creators from around the state.

But that didn’t mean we were done.

We can now announce that Bob Stoops, the iconic former head football coach of the University of Oklahoma, has officially joined forces with Sellout Crowd to bring his insights and expertise to a regular presentation on the network: “Conversations With Coach.”

With an extraordinary head coaching career spanning over two decades, Bob Stoops is revered by OU fans. He led the Sooners to the 2000 National Championship and won 191 games in his career. His teams won 10 bowl games and 10 Big 12 Championships.

“I am happy to embark on this exciting journey with Sellout Crowd,” said Stoops, whose first show posts soon. “This platform allows me to connect with fans, talk to my fellow coaches, and continue contributing to the conversation about sports.”

Mike Koehler, founder of Sellout Crowd, is enthusiastic about the remarkable partnership: “Having Bob Stoops as a part of our team signifies the caliber and credibility that Sellout Crowd brings to the sports media landscape. We are dedicated to providing a platform for important, high-quality voices like coach Stoops to drive the best content and conversations about sports in Oklahoma.”
