Position(s): DB

Bob Stoops attended Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio. He was coached by his father in high school, and his brothers Mike and Mark also attended Iowa.

He was recruited by Bob Commings, also from Ohio, but only spent one year at Iowa before Commings was fired and Hayden Fry was hired. Stoops was a four-year starter, and one-time All-Big Ten selection at defensive back, despite his smaller frame. He was named Iowa’s Team MVP in 1982.

Stoops had even greater success as a coach. After working as a grad assistant at Iowa, he held various coordinator and positions at Kansas State and Florida before being named Head Coach at Oklahoma. At the same time, Kirk Ferentz was named Head Coach at Iowa, and many fans were hoping that Stoops would be the Iowa coach (he had interviewed for the job).

During the 2000 season, Stoops led the Sooners to an Orange Bowl victory and a national championship. Stoops was awarded the Paul "Bear" Bryant Award in 2000 and the Walter Camp Coach of the Year Award in 2000 and 2003.

Born 9/9/1960 and is 61 years old.
