OU’s Montgomery accepts NFL position

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma co-defensive coordinator Jerry Montgomery has agreed in principle to accept an NFL coaching position.

The school made the announcement in a news release on Tuesday but would not name the team Montgomery is joining.

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops has called Montgomery "a rising star in this profession." He was Michigan’s defensive line coach before joining Oklahoma’s staff in February 2013 in the same role. His first year, in Norman, the Sooners led the Big 12 in total defense. After the 2014 season, Stoops promoted Montgomery to share defensive coordinator duties with Mike Stoops.

Bob Stoops already has fired co-offensive coordinators Josh Heupel and Jay Norvell and brought in East Carolina’s Lincoln Riley. On Monday, the school announced the additions of defensive backs coach Kerry Cooks and outside receivers coach Dennis Simmons.
