The Oklahoma Sooners have a new head man in charge. After Lincoln Riley stunned the college football world to head to USC, the search was on to find a suitable replacement.

Well, the Sooners have done just that, as they've landed Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables. It goes without saying, but this is a big-time get for the Sooners.

Venables has coached up countless NFL prospects while at Clemson. Now, he'll be running things at Oklahoma. While seeing Riley leave town definitely stung for fans, they're loving this move in bringing in Venables. He'll hit the ground running ASAP out on the recruiting front.
