Report: Porter Moser accepts Oklahoma job

Chicago

Loyola-Chicago head coach Porter Moser has reportedly accepted an offer to become the head coach for the Oklahoma Sooners.

Shams Charania is reporting that Moser agreed to the deal on Friday. 

Adam Zagoria previously reported that Oklahoma's offer to Moser was for six years and "in the neighborhood of $2.5M annually." But details about the offer Moser accepted aren't known yet.

NBC Sports Chicago's own David Kaplan reported "money and lengthy of the deal will not be an issue" for Oklahoma, which is one of the richest college athletic departments in the country.

Loyola-Chicago made a "huge offer" and a 10-year deal to keep Moser.

A thrilling chapter comes to an end for the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers. Moser led the team to the 2018 Final Four and took the Ramblers to the Sweet 16 in the 2021 tournament.

Moser has been the Loyola-Chicago head coach since 2011, winning 189 games over that span. He's won three Missouri Valley Conference regular season championships and two conference tournament championships.

For Oklahoma, they're hoping Moser can bring some of that winning to Norman. The Sooners are replacing the Len Kruger, who retired after the 2021 NCAA Tournament.

The Sooners last reached the Final Four in 2016 and haven't made it to the second weekend of the tournament since. The Sooners' last conference championship in the regular season was 2005. The Sooners' last Big 12 Tournament Championship came in 2003.
