NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Brent Venables has shown steady, early confidence as Oklahoma’s new head football coach.

Those who work with him say that shouldn’t be a surprise. Retired coaches Bill Snyder of Kansas State and Bob Stoops of Oklahoma both say Venables has learned a lot in his years as an assistant.

Venables most recently was defensive coordinator for national powerhouse Clemson. Now he takes over the Sooners.

No. 9 Oklahoma hosts UTEP in the season opener next month.
