Brent Venables headed to Oklahoma

December 5, 2021

Brent Venables has accepted an offer to become the Oklahoma Sooner’s next head coach. Venables, who arrived in Clemson from Oklahoma in 2012, helped lead the Tigers to two national championships and six consecutive College Football Playoff berths.

Venables and his family have boarded a flight to Norman, Oklahoma ahead of the formal announcement. 

Venables previously coached 13 years (1999-11) at Oklahoma and three years (1996-98) at Kansas State. He was also a graduate assistant at Kansas State for three years (1993-95).

During his time at Oklahoma, Venables served as co-defensive coordinator (1999-03) and defensive coordinator at Oklahoma (2004-11).

Venables has coached in eight national championship games, helping Clemson to four berths in the title contest. His defenses are an incredible 13-2 in 15 conference championship games, including a 6-0 record in ACC Championship Games with Clemson.

Venables was the recipient of the 2016 Frank Broyles Award as the nation’s top assistant coach. His 2016 group amassed 130 tackles for loss and a then-school-record 49 sacks. His teams led the NCAA in tackles for loss four seasons in a row from 2013-16.

Oklahoma has a 10:30 AM press conference set for Monday.
