NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Steve Spurrier Jr. has returned to Oklahoma as director of high school recruiting and as an offensive specialist.

Coach Bob Stoops announced the hiring Thursday.

Spurrier spent the last 11 seasons as South Carolina’s wide receivers coach. He helped the Gamecocks reach nine bowl games and worked with future NFL standouts Sidney Rice and Alshon Jeffery.

Spurrier was the wide receivers coach on Oklahoma’s 2000 national championship team. In his time with the Sooners from 1999 to 2001, he worked with All-Big 12 receivers Mark Clayton, Curtis Fagan, Jarrail Jackson, Josh Norman, Antwone Savage and Andre Woolfolk.

At South Carolina, he became the passing game coordinator in 2009, recruiting coordinator in 2011 and co-offensive coordinator in 2012. He was a graduate assistant on Florida’s 1996 national championship staff.
