Bob Stoops might as well put a message on a loop that he isn't going any where outside his coaching office at Oklahoma.

Stoops tried to shoot down rumors again that he is not considering leaving the Sooners for Notre Dame on Tuesday.

After hearing that ESPN's Adam Schefter described Stoops as the front-runner to take over the Irish, Stoops denied the report to Tulsa World columnist Dave Sittler.

"I don't' know where (Schefter) is getting his information, but it's wrong," Stoops told the columnist. "It's all been wrong."

On Monday, Stoops said he planned to be at Oklahoma next year and can't be in two places at once, and he expressed concern that report connecting him to Notre Dame could hinder recruiting.
