NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Bob Stoops says he loves his job at No. 12 Oklahoma and intends to stay put.

It's become an annual rite for Stoops' name to surface as a potential candidate when coaching jobs open up across the country. With several high-profile vacancies, Stoops was asked Monday about his name being connected to the opening at Tennessee.

Stoops' response was: ``I like the job I have. I love the job I have and the people I work for, so I'll try and keep it another year.''

The 52-year-old Stoops is in his 14th season coaching the Sooners (9-2, 7-1 Big 12). He suggested he's interested in coaching as long as his former boss, 67-year-old Steve Spurrier.
