Though the name of Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops has been floated in connection to the Broncos coaching vacancy, he insisted he is not a candidate.

One reason Stoops-to-Denver speculation started is because Broncos owner Pat Bowlen has two degrees from the University of Oklahoma. But based on what Stoops said Saturday, speculation can cease.

“That’s a rumor I haven’t heard, and no one’s contacted me about that so I don’t know anything about it,” Stoops told reporters in Miami. “We’re preparing for a national championship and that’s all my focus.

“Obviously I’m not a candidate. I’m sure someone might have told me that other than you guys if I was.”

Stoops didn’t rule out coaching in the NFL someday, but not now.

“At some point in my life or career that may be the case,” he said. “Everyone wants you to tell them what you’re going to do 10 years from now. Who knows? I don’t know.

“There’s nothing there. I don’t know how to say it any clearer.”
