The University of Oklahoma unveiled a statue of former quarterback and 2018 Heisman Award winner Kyler Murray this weekend before the Sooners’ annual spring game.
Murray and his family were in Norman for festivities that began Friday night in Oklahoma City as the statue was unveiled during an event at a hotel.
The statue depicts Murray, helmetless, in a throwing motion, complete with the patented headband he wore in college. Added a statuette is Murray, the Sooners’ seventh Heisman Trophy winner, along with other winners that include good friend and former teammate Baker Mayfield, Sam Bradford, Jason White, Billy Sims, Steve Owens, and Billy Vissels.
A squad of Arizona Cardinals coaches, including new head coach Jonathan Gannon, and general manager Monty Osenfurt, were in Norman on Saturday. The statue was moved from Oklahoma City to its home on the Oklahoma campus. Joining Gannon and Ossenfort are offensive coordinator Drew Petzing, quarterbacks coach Israel Wolffork, and offensive quality control coach Connor Singer.
Current Sooners coach Brent Venables and former coach Bob Stoops also attended.
