Capel Denies Report He's Hired Assistant

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma basketball coach Jeff Capel is denying a report in an Arkansas newspaper that he's hired a former Razorbacks assistant to the OU staff. The report says Oronde Taliaferro is heading to OU to replace Rod Barnes who was hired as head coach at Georgia State.

Capel says Taliaferro ``could be'' the Sooners new assistant but no one has been hired yet.

Taliaferro is considered a top recruiter and was an assistant to Stan Heath at Arkansas. Heath was fired last month.
