NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma has added Kerry Cooks as defensive backs coach and Dennis Simmons as outside receivers coach.

The school announced the moves in a news release on Monday.

Cooks spent the previous five seasons at Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish made five straight bowl appearances during that run, including a berth in the BCS national championship following the 2012 season. Cooks had previous coaching stops at Wisconsin, Minnesota, Western Illinois and Kansas State.

Simmons will coach outside receivers for Oklahoma after spending the previous three years in that role for Mike Leach at Washington State. Last season, Washington State led all FBS schools with 477.7 yards passing per game. Simmons worked with new offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley at East Carolina in 2010-11.
