Before his "Salute to Stoops" celebration in April 2018, legendary football coach Bob Stoops was asked if he had interest in writing a book.
"I’m thinking about it," Stoops said before his statue revelation on the eve of the Oklahoma spring football game. "Possibly. We’ll see. I don’t know if there’s a market out there for it or not. So we’ll see."
The Tulsa World received an advance proof of "No Excuses: The Making of a Head Coach" this week. The 294-page copy was written by Stoops and ESPN reporter Gene Wojciechowski. It has an official release date of Sept. 10 and is published by Little, Brown and Company.
