Brent Venables is a name that Sooner fans are no stranger to.
Before going to coach at Clemson, Venables spent 13 seasons with the OU program as a defensive coordinator and associate head coach under Bob Stoops.
Fans have expressed OU is a great offensive team but has been mediocre on defense. They hope bringing in Venables will change that.
“I think based on the overall atmosphere of the campus right now when people drop his name I think a lot of people are excited about it,” said Nathan Wong, an OU fan.
Sunday night, fans met Venables as soon as he landed in Norman welcoming him back to Sooner nation.
