‘Nothing true’: Porter Moser shoots down DePaul rumors

In year three under Porter Moser, it is looking like things are starting to click for the Oklahoma Sooners. They have found themselves back in the top 25 after a week out of it.

They’ve also set themselves up perfectly for a NCAA Tournament berth. That would be the first NCAA Tournament appearance since Lon Kruger’s final season in Norman.

But just as things have started to look up, rumors started to swirl last week that this could be Moser’s final season in Norman. The school that could pull him away was DePaul.

On the surface, that move doesn’t make a lot of sense. DePaul is 3-20 on the season this year. But if you dig a little deeper, it actually makes a lot of sense. DePaul is in Chicago, IL, which is an area Moser knows very well, coming from Loyola Chicago. It’s also a Catholic university which is something that has been reported to mean a lot to Moser.

Moser was asked about these rumors during his media availability on Monday. “I haven’t talked to anybody,” Moser said. “Not even thinking about anything. I’m just absolutely not even engaging in anything like that, 100%. I’m so excited about where we are at with the team. This is everything we’ve tried to build for, is being in this position. Same comment as last year, all rumors, all mill-fodder. Nothing true.”

Whether you think he’s the guy for the job or not, Moser has started to show signs of success. This was a rebuild that was going to take time and he’s made real progress in year three. At the end of the day, having continuity is never a bad thing either.
