Unfortunately for Oklahoma fans, you'll only be able to experience one more year of Kyler Murray's dual-sport greatness.
Murray's agent, Scott Boras, confirmed to The Athletic that 2018 would be Murray's final season at Oklahoma University.

This news comes at an awkward time for Lincoln Riley, who told media after the first Sooners preseason practice that he was not yet shutting the door on Murray's future in Norman.
Talk about bad timing.

Now, despite what Riley wants, Murray will not be returning for his final year of eligibility at OU in 2019.
Murray, the Oakland Athletic's No. 9 overall pick, signed a multi-million dollar contract that requires him to join the A's as soon as the football season is over.
Tough luck for Riley and the entire Sooners organization. Kyler Murray will have to give everything he's got in his final season as a collegiate athlete, and that's no small feat, considering he's following in the footsteps of Baker Mayfield.
The Sooners are a highly anticipated team this season led by Riley and Murray. Will they live up to the hype?
