Toby Keith and former University of Oklahoma football coach Barry Switzer are among a group of business leaders working to establish a new bank in Oklahoma City, The Oklahoman newspaper reports. Keith and Switzer, who also previously coached the Dallas Cowboys, are among those seeking investors to provide the $10 million needed to capitalize the bank. Joey Root, a veteran banker who is working on the project, said the bank would cater to commercial clients and wealthy, private customers.
