    Default Jack Spates retiring at season end

    It's been reported by a lot of sources; OU's website, the local media, the USA Today, and the Associated Press. This has been rumored for at least 2 years now, but never has anything like this been released.

    Is Henson going to replace him or are they going to do a search?

    You'd have to assume that Henson is going to be the guy. He had a huge effect on their program (just like he's done everywhere he's gone) last year and he's finally done competing.

    Should be an easy decision in my eyes.

    I think legally there has to be a search. How thorough that search is going to be is another question.

    I think the search will be to find a new assistant coach. Surely Henson will get promoted.
