Oklahoma hired Porter Moser as its next head basketball coach on Saturday.
Moser was widely reported as the job's leading candidate in the days prior. Previously the head coach at Loyola-Chicago, Moser went 188-141 in 10 seasons. He led the Ramblers to a 26-5 record and the Missouri Valley conference regular season and tournament championship in 2020. In his tenure, Moser also led Loyola to a Final Four in 2018 and Sweet Sixteen last season.
Here's how Twitter is reacting to the next Sooner head coach:

What a loss for Loyola - Porter Moser *built* that program, down to handing out hot dogs in the student center to help encourage attendance at games. But what a run.— Michele Steele (@MicheleSteele) April 2, 2021
Porter Moser recruited the KC area pretty well. Two Blue Valley NW products were key players in his first Final Four run with Loyola Chicago. May see some KC area players suit up for Oklahoma now with Moser's move to the Sooner state.— Harold R. Kuntz (@HaroldRKuntz3) April 2, 2021
I am not sure what the argument is against Joe Castiglione being the best AD in the country.— George Stoia III (@GeorgeStoia) April 2, 2021
The first technical Moser picks up I’m going insane. It’s been 10 years since we’ve seen one— Barstool Sooners (@OUBarstool) April 2, 2021
