Default Ryan Humphrey to OU (as asst)



On Thursday, the South Bend (Indiana) Tribune reported that Humphrey would be leaving Notre Dame. The Tulsa World has learned that Humphrey’s next home will be his former home: Norman, Oklahoma, where he’ll be a member of Porter Moser’s Sooner staff.

There has been no confirmation or announcement from the University of Oklahoma or Humphrey, but it is expected that he soon will be reunited with the OU program. The 42-year-old Humphrey returns as a family man. He and RaSheda, his wife of 14 years, have two sons: Ryan and Rylan.

Is this a good thing? I thought he left OU kind of on bad terms...

I think he has stated publicly (years ago) that it was a mistake to leave.

Seeing Humphrey with a gray beard makes me feel really old.

This should be huge for recruiting. It'll change the (bigs) recruiting board. Will help with a kid like Brandon Garrison IMO. New names may get offered like:



I'm probably too excited for this hire. Played against him in high school. He was so good as a player (football as well).

I LOVE this hire! I had mentioned Jeff Webster as an option, but didn’t think we could get him. Ryan should help our bigs tremendously! I would think he’s a good recruiter too…and should help us land some bigs.

I can remember when Hump committed to OU! I was about in tears (of joy)! He was a DOMINANT player in HS, but simply got caught in the trap of think he was playing out of position…but he was who he was, an athletic freak of a PF, who was a great shot blocker and scorer in college…but was a little undersized for the NBA.

Humphrey was the constant that year, though, and held the Irish’s recruiting efforts together during the transition. He was known as a strong recruiter and helped the Irish land five-star guard J.J. Starling in the 2022 class. He also carried a positive reputation in the program for his player development skills


From the Notre Dame board.

Not a fan of this hire. Not what we needed, IMO.

Oklahoma guy. Regionals ties. I think it’s exactly what we needed but tell us more why you think not.


A few more Texas toes is my only drawback.

Guessing it’s because his last name is not Sampson.


Humphrey is a great hire for us. Good recruiter and developer at a strong D1 program. He has regional recruiting ties that Moser and rest of the staff dont have yet. This is a huge upgrade over the texas assistant we lost, as well.

Exactly. He would be doing cartwheels if we hired Kelvin's second cousin once removed.

Yep! You know him well.

This is a great hire! And, by the way, Skyvue is absolutely right in that Ryan admitted he made a mistake by leaving OU.

Meh, he transferred. Different era. It's pretty apparent that fences were mended. A happy homecoming, in a way.

Yawn! Hasn’t recruited anywhere near the state. Has Notre Dame landed any high profile recruits in the last several years?
