(ESPN) – Bob Stoops, the longest-tenured coach in college football, will tell the Oklahoma Sooners on Wednesday that he is retiring after 18 seasons, a source confirmed to ESPN’s Mark Schlabach.

Offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley will succeed Stoops, who will remain with OU in some capacity, according to the Oklahoman, who first reported Stoops was retiring as head coach.

WWLS Radio reported that Stoops said he is not retiring because of his health and will meet with the team at 3:30 p.m. ET.
