Report: Brent Venables, Oklahoma agree on new 6-year contract

brent venables

Oklahoma and football coach Brent Venables have agreed to a new six-year contract that includes a “significant raise,” ESPN reported Friday.

Venables’ contract is on the lengthy agenda for Friday’s university Board of Regents meeting and requires the group’s approval before it can take effect.

His original deal, signed when he was hired prior to the 2022 season, was for six years and $43.5 million.

Over the past two seasons, the Sooners are 16-10 — 6-7 in 2022 and 10-3 last season. They qualified for a bowl game each season, losing both.

Oklahoma is the first head coaching job for Venables, 53.

He began his career as a graduate assistant at his alma mater Kansas State in 1993, then moved on to positions at Oklahoma and Clemson. He won the Broyles Award in 2016 as the nation’s top assistant under Dabo Swinney at Clemson, where he was the assistant head coach, defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at the time of his departure.

The Sooners are moving from the Big 12 to the Southeastern Conference this fall. They kick off their season Aug. 30 against Temple and will jump into SEC play on Sept. 21 as they host Tennessee.
