Sooners Give Punter the Boot

Head Coach Bob Stoops has dismissed punter Cody Freeby from the Oklahoma football team.

"He has not lived up to his responsibilities or expectations with the team or academically," Stoops said. "He also hasn't followed through on the disciplinary measures that resulted in those areas."

Freeby had already been suspended by Stoops.

Freeby averaged 42.3 yards per punt as a sophomore last season, his first as the Sooners' starter. He was also the team's holder on placekicks.

Backup Mike Knall, a junior college transfer, has never punted in a game for the Sooners.
