Parcells makes appearance at Sooners' practice



Former NFL coach and current Miami Dolphins VP of football operations Bill Parcells was at Oklahoma's practice at Barry University on Saturday afternoon.

Sooners' coach Bob Stoops enjoyed having the surprise guest. Oklahoma has several players who are considered NFL prospects.

"It was great,'' Stoops said. "He’s just evaluating our players I’m sure, but it was great to have him here. I’ve always been a big fan of the way he coaches. I think it’s always important when you get a legendary figure and a guy that’s a hall of fame coach. I just like to have our players see and hear from those kind of guys and always he has a great message for them.''
