The home of Oklahoma Sooners coach Bob Stoops and his family was burglarized at roughly 3:30 on Wednesday morning, according to a report from ESPN.

The burglary occurred around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday while the Stoops family slept, according to Lieutenant Eric Lehenbauer of the Norman Police Department. Among the items stolen was a vehicle.

Police were called to the scene about 8:30 a.m. after the family discovered the burglary. Lehenbauer said there were no injuries.

The crime is being considered a first-degree burglary, and Lehenbauer said his department has leads it is following.

Thankfully, no one was hurt at the time. A vehicle was stolen from the home, so Stoops will have the headache of filing a police report and replacing it.

This is the second time Stoops’ home has been in the news recently. He and his family only moved into it last year, but it was very nearly torn out of its foundations along with the entire city of Moore when the absolutely devastating tornadoes ripped through the town. Stoops reported that his home was roughly a mile from where the twister touched down.
