Oklahoma hires Jones as WR coach, passing game coordinator

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma has hired Emmett Jones as wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator. Jones held the same positions at Texas Tech this past season. The Red Raiders beat Oklahoma 51-48 in overtime on Nov. 26 after rolling up 599 yards of offense, including 436 yards passing. Texas Tech led the Big 12 in passing offense. Jones fills the receivers coach role vacated when Cale Gundy stepped down in August. Gundy had been with the program as an assistant since 1999, but the school said he uttered a racially charged word multiple times during a film session.
