According to the Norman Transcript, Illinois head basketball coach Bruce Weber is reportedly at the top of Oklahoma's short list.
Weber emerged as the lead candidate for the Sooner's vacancy after Marquette's Buzz Williams decided to stay put earlier in the week.
While their is no clear indication on Weber's interest in the position with Oklahoma, the St. Louis Post Dispatch did publish a report with a quote from the Illini head coach that relayed that there was "No real story" as of late Wednesday evening.
There are also multiple Internet reports stating that if Weber were to leave it would happen sooner than later.
Weber is 193-86 during his eight years at Illinois, getting the Illini to the NCAA Tournament six times with one NCAA Championship title game appearance in 2005.
