University of OklahomaOklahoma has fired Jeff Capel as its basketball coach, a source confirmed to on Monday.

The school is expected to announce the change soon.

Capel coached Oklahoma for five seasons and took the Sooners to the Elite Eight two years ago with Blake Griffin. But Capel has gone 9-23 in the Big 12 the past two years and dealt with off-the-court issues stemming from a financial advisor giving money to Tiny Gallon’s family before the McDonald’s All-American enrolled at OU. Gallon turned pro after one season with the Sooners.
