Two people are in custody and in the burglary of Oklahoma head football coach Bob Stoops’ home, reports the Oklahoman.

The family was home during the robbery, which happened at 3:30 a.m. last Wednesday, and did not realized they had been robbed until they awoke in the morning. A vehicle was among the items stolen and no one was hurt during the burglary.

The reports says that one of the suspects discussed the robbery at a party and admitted to police that he participated in the burglary.

Corey McCarty was arrested on complaints of burglary, possession of stolen property, unlawful use of a credit card and grand larceny of an automobile.

Stoops has been the Oklahoma coach since 1999 and has a career record of 149-37. His teams have won eight Big 12 championships and one national championship in 2000.

More from the Oklahoman:

McCarty was taken to Norman Police Department, where he waived his Miranda rights and confessed to the crime, the documents state.

McCarty admitted entering the home and taking property and a vehicle with an associate, police said.

Stoops’ home, 5400 36 Ave. NW, was burglarized early Wednesday while the family slept, police said. No one was hurt during the intrusion.

A vehicle and other smaller items were reported missing from the home, Norman police Lt. Eric Lehenbauer said.

Surveillance footage from the Stoops’ home and from a business captured the images of two people suspected in the burglary, which police released Friday to the media.

Norman police said the two tried to use a stolen credit card that was taken during the burglary.

He should get a dog or alarm SOONER rather than later.

See what I did there?  I'm a genie!

My guess is inside job or someone who has been to their residence before.  Possibly a high school friend of one of his children.

No wonder Oklahoma is struggling!!  You are trying to run a major college football program and you don't get out of bed until 8:30 in the morning???  Or even worse...you were up early and didn't notice you were robbed...  There is a certain coach with a lot of rings recently who had a full day's work in by 8:30.

Bob Stoops - you need to get a dog.  Preferably a mastiff.  If you had one now, there would have been no burglary.

He was in Kansas for an event genius. Read the freaking article.

@John4 If it was U Ga. they would have probably given him a bulldog.

@Barry Bonillo Just like your hopes of a national championship...you are seeing things that just aren't there.  Nowhere does it say he was in Kansas...what it says is 'while the family slept' and when they awoke at 8:30.  Maybe you should read.  Or maybe you can't...

@CharlieFoxtrot They eat less than you would think, and not more than the average large dog.  I have had two mastiffs so far, and it's the only type of dog I would get.

@Rickapolis Rick - how's it going?  Yes, I guess bulldogs are OK, but once you own a mastiff, you would never get any other type of dog.  Gentle giants.  Also, they seem to think they're in charge of the house and security, which is interesting.  But, as far as getting a house with a mastiff burglarized, well, that's not going to happen.
