It looks like Bob Stoops had some suitors, but is still not going to come back to the coaching world anytime soon.
According to Brooke Pryor of The Oklahoman, Steve Spurrier asked Stoops to be his defensive coordinator in the new league Spurrier will coach in.
Will Bob Stoops coach again?

Bob Stoops retired at the top of the coaching world, and hasn’t shown any signs of wanting to return.
Stoops was 190-48 over his career at Oklahoma, with a 121-29 record in conference play. He won 10 Big 12 titles and one national title in 200. He’s won Big 12 Coach of the Year six times, and was the Walter Camp Coach of the Year twice.
Needless to say, Stoops has accomplished it all over the course of his career. He’s shown no signs of wanting to come back to the sport, and has answered in the negative every time he’s been asked directly. While he was derided by some, there’s no questioning that his body of work at least makes him an excellent football coach.
