NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma has fired co-offensive coordinators Josh Heupel and Jay Norvell.

Coach Bob Stoops announced the moves Tuesday and promoted Jerry Montgomery from defensive line coach to co-defensive coordinator.

Oklahoma won the Sugar Bowl at the end of last season and entered this season with national championship hopes and a No. 4 ranking. The Sooners won five of their first six, but finished 8-5, ending the regular season with a stunning overtime loss to Oklahoma State, then losing to Clemson 40-6 in the Russell Athletic Bowl.

Heupel won a national championship as a quarterback at Oklahoma in 2000. He became the school's quarterbacks coach in 2005, then moved up to co-offensive coordinator in Dec. 2010. Norvell joined the staff in 2008 as assistant offensive coordinator and receivers coach.
