After quite a period of time, Nichols made the decision on Wednesday to retire after 34 years of coaching, 29 of which were spent in Oklahoma — including stops at Panama and Heavener.
“It was an extremely hard decision to make,” Nichols said. “You hate to leave players you've gotten close to. That was the hard part. It was a tough decision. I kicked it around for a long time before I finally decided to do it (on Wednesday).”
