NORMAN, Okla. — Several on the University of Oklahoma football coaching staff took the opportunity to celebrate their daughters on Valentine’s Day weekend in the best way possible -- they hosted a “Daddy-Daughter” date night.
Oklahoma head football coach Lincoln Riley posted a sweet photo on Twitter with the hashtag #girldad along with his coaching staff and their daughters.
The phrase #girldad was made viral after a touching tribute by ESPN anchor Elle Duncan after she told viewers about her encounter with NBA legend Kobe Bryant. Bryant loved being a girl dad, Duncan told viewers right after Bryant’s death.
Among those in the date night photo is new running backs coach, former NFL running back DeMarco Murray and his daughter.
“#girldad thankful everyday day for this perfect gal,” Murray posted on Instagram. “Love you and thankful for my wife and crazy kiddos.”
Cheers to each and every #girldad.
