NORMAN, Okla. — It looks like the University of Oklahoma has found their new defensive coordinator.

The Athletic's Bruce Feldman was first to report that former Ohio State Co-Defensive Coordinator Alex Grinch is heading to Norman and will be named the defensive coordinator.

Grinch spent last season with the Buckeyes and was the defensive coordinator at Washington State for three years.

Last night, head coach Lincoln Riley tweeted out eye emojis.

Former DC Mike Stoops was fired in October.
