Sooners Defensive Coordinator stays put

Oklahoma defensive coordinator Brent Venables doesn't plan on pursuing the head coaching vacancy at Miami.
Venables said after the Sooners' practice on Tuesday night that
he's "not interested in any job" and is focused on No. 10
Oklahoma's preparations to face No. 13 Nebraska in the Big 12
championship game on Saturday night.
Venables had been considered a possible candidate because Miami
athletic director Kirby Hocutt formerly worked at Oklahoma.
"I'm not looking at any job," Venables said. "I have no
intentions to visit with anybody. I've got a great job and we've
got a big-time job this week. There's nothing really to talk
about."
University regents approved a $45,000 raise for Venables last
month, increasing his annual salary to $440,000.

    Venables is not head coach material. He is too "hot headed" and can't communicate without yelling. When you are constantly yelling as a leader the volume will eventually loose it's value and so will your effectiveness as a leader and that is what has happened with Brent. Watch him during any play of any game and you will see the exact same behavior, yelling, flipping out and stressing out - regardless of what is happening on the field, good plays, bad plays... all the same - Venables is about to blow his top and is screaming a a player (or players). He should consider himself blessed to have the job he does.
