Graduate Assistant Chip Viney Named Special Teams Quality Control Coach

Oklahoma defensive graduate assistant coach Courtney “Chip” Viney will stay with the program as a special teams quality control coach, Bob Stoops announced Wednesday.

Viney had been a graduate assistant the last three years, and his time as a GA had run out, as he recently graduated with a master’s degree.

“Courtney has been a great person for us, a great recruiter,” Stoops said. “He has a bright future, really does. He’s a great communicator and an excellent coach.”

Viney, a former cornerback at UCLA and New Mexico State, is originally from Fresno, Calif.

Several Sooner defensive backs have praised him in the last few years and credited him for their development.

“To be honest with you, I don't think I'd be the player I am right now without Chip,” former OU cornerback Zack Sanchez said before the 2015 season. (The Oklahoman)
