(Norman-AP) -- Oklahoma co-defensive coordinator Mike Stoops says he'll interview for a second time for the vacant Arizona head coaching job.

Stoops tells The Daily Oklahoman he'll meet with Arizona's search committee Sunday in California. Stoops is one of five candidates who'll be interviewed between tomorrow and Monday.

Search committee chair Kathleen LaRose says interim Arizona coach Mike Hankwitz; Cincinnati Bengals linebacker coach Ricky Hunley; New York Giants defensive coordinator Johnnie Lynn; and Southern California offensive coordinator Norm Chow will also be interviewed.

Stoops says he's excited that Arizona is interested in him, but says he's more worried about Saturday's game against Texas Tech. He says he'll return to Norman after Saturday's game, then travel to California.
