Brent Venables is saying goodbye to Oklahoma, his home since 1999, the entirety of Bob Stoops' tenure in Norman.
He's accepted a job as the defensive coordinator at Clemson.
Colleague Jake Trotter of SoonerNation has the story:
NORMAN, Okla. -- Last week, the Sooners added a defensive coordinator.
This week, they lost one.
Brent Venables, an assistant at Oklahoma under Bob Stoops since 1999, is leaving to take the defensive coordinator job at Clemson.
Venables was co-defensive coordinator at OU from 1999 to 2003, before taking the defensive playcalling over after Mike Stoops left. But last week, Stoops brought his brother Mike back to the staff, relegating Venables to being a co-coordinator again.
Looks like the K-State faithful will have to look elsewhere for their new defensive coordinator ... and head coach?
