NORMAN, Okla. — The University of Oklahoma Board of Regents met Thursday with the compensation for Bob Stoops included on the agenda.

Stoops is temporarily taking over the school's football program after the sudden departure of head coach Lincoln Riley for USC.

Stoops coached the Sooners starting in 1999 until his retirement in 2016.

The Board approved a plan to officially name Stoops the interim head coach for the team's bowl game, confirming his compensation for the interim role as a one-time $325,000 payment.

Stoops immediately hit the recruiting trail Monday following the announcement of his new position.

The school has yet to announce a full-time replacement for Riley.
