EL PASO, Texas -- The Oklahoma Sooners will face off against two Harbaugh’s in the Sun Bowl.

Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh said Thursday that he's hired his dad, Jack, to be the interim running backs coach for the Cardinal's first bowl game since 2001. He replaces Willie Taggart, who was hired last month as the head coach at Western Kentucky, his alma mater.

Jack Harbaugh has previously coached at Western Michigan and Western Kentucky, where he won a national championship in what was Division I-AA.

The Sooners (7-6, 5-3 Big 12) will take on the Cardinal (8-4, 6-3 Pac-10) on Dec. 30 in the Sun Bowl in El Paso.
