Wyatt to leave Sooners for NFL Vikings

Wyatt joins Vikings staff: Oklahoma lost a second member of its offensive staff when receivers coach and passing game coordinator Darrell Wyatt took a job with the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday.Wyatt had been the Sooners' receivers coach for the past four seasons and was also the team's pass game coordinator last season. "It's tough to leave, but I felt this was a great opportunity," said Wyatt, who joins the staff of new Vikings head coach Brad Childress. "I get to join a new staff on the front end of a new contract. I look forward to the challenge on the next level. "I feel like all our recruits are in good hands and I have encouraged all of them to stay with Oklahoma." Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said he doesn't feel "any extra urgency" to replace Wyatt and has several directions he could go in finding a replacement. (AP/
