Bob Stoops announced several changes and additions to the OU Football support staff for the 2013 season.
Reed Case has been promoted to director of player
personnel. Case enters his third season at the University of Oklahoma
after joining the Sooners in March 2011 as on-campus recruiting
coordinator. Case works closely with Stoops, Cale Gundy (director of
recruiting/running backs coach) and the rest of the OU coaching staff to
research and attract the nation’s top talent to OU.
Case’s duties range from player research to scholarship management
and the coordination of the recruiting calendar for members of the
coaching staff. Case owns prior experience working at Kentucky, East
Carolina, Oklahoma State, Akron, Northwestern, Virginia and Texas. He
also interned in the personnel department of the NFL’s Houston Texans.
Rajeeb Hossain joins the Sooners as director of high
school relations after stints at Cal-Berkeley and Louisiana Tech in
addition to serving six seasons at the University of Kansas. A graduate
of Norman High School and the University of Central Oklahoma, Hossain
will work closely with Case and Stoops’ coaching staff to develop
creative and engaging digital and traditional recruiting materials, in
addition to other duties that will continue to foster positive
relationships with high school coaches and prospects.
In addition, Stephanie Oakes has moved into a full-time role with OU Football as a recruiting assistant after previously serving in a part-time capacity.
Tiffany Byrd joined OU Athletics earlier this year
as director of sports nutrition. She works with all OU sports and
student-athletes to developing comprehensive nutrition programs geared
toward improving training, performance and recovery. Byrd collaborates
with the OU strength and conditioning staff to provide the Sooners with a
competitive edge by customizing dietary plans to complement in-season
and off-season conditioning regiments.
She also oversees the wide range of meal offerings for football and
all other OU athletic programs at the Sam Bradford Training Table
located in the recently-opened Headington Hall, a $75 million student
housing facility on the OU campus. Byrd is a former NCAA student-athlete
who concluded her gymnastics career at the University of Nebraska.
Stoops also announced the following individuals who will be assisting the Sooners in 2013: Joe Jon Finley (offensive quality control), Ryan McKim (special teams quality control), Chad Walker (defensive quality control), Jon Cooper and Joey Halzle (offensive graduate assistants) and Corey Callens and Courtney Viney (defensive graduate assistants).
