OWASSO, Okla. - Bill Blankenship has been introduced as the Owasso Rams head football.

Blankenship returns to Green Country following a one-year stint at Fayetteville High School. In his lone season in northwest Arkansas, Blankenship guided the Purple Dogs to a 12-1 record and the 7A state title.

His introduction happened during a press conference in Owasso Friday. Watch Blankenship's remarks in the video player above.

Blankenship was hired as head coach at the University of Tulsa in 2011. He compiled a 24-27 record during his four years, including an 11-3 campaign in 2012 that ended with a Conference USA championship and Liberty Bowl victory.
