Police said the burglary occurred around 3:30 a.m. while members of the Stoops family slept. Authorities were called early the next morning when they realized the crime had occurred. Along with items taken from inside the house, there was also a car stolen.
The details of which Stoops family members were home at the time haven't been released, but the Sooners coach has three children (daughter Mackenzie, twin sons Drake and Isaac) with wife Carol. Last month Stoops said in an interview that he could see the tornado that devastated Moore, Okla from the back window of his house.
Lt. Eric Lehenbauer of the Norman Police Department told The Oklahoman that no further details were available due it being an ongoing investigation. Stoops has coached in Norman since 1999, but moved into his current home - a 350-acre spread valued at $3.3 million - last year.
