OU Assistant Makes Reporters Laugh

One Great Season

NORMAN, Okla. -- The football geniuses over at prompted an interesting thread about people who go by three names.

Bobby Jack Wright is one of those people, but he's kind of a deluxe edition in that he also has three jobs. He's the assistant head coach, the co-defensive coordinator and the secondary coach at Oklahoma.

And he was asked Wednesday to talk about a man with only three letters in his first name, Nic Harris, who earned all-American honors last year as a safety/linebacker. What he lacks in speed, he makes up for with effort. You know the type.

Anyway, Harris is now a Buffalo Bill, a scout for whom was in Norman recently and told Wright that Harris could earn some key reps at linebacker now that he's bulked up to 250 pounds, from 230 last year at OU.

Wright seemed a talkative guy who was glad to hear his former star is proving himself as an NFL rookie.
