The Oklahoma State football program is coming off consecutive ten-win seasons and an Alamo Bowl victory.
With such tangible and consistent success under the guidance of twelve year coach Mike Gundy, it’s no wonder they are looking to sign him to an extension.
There has been a tentative agreement in place since last season, though nothing is officially signed and dated yet.
There was some suspicion that Gundy might be swayed to leave Oklahoma State over growing tension with booster Boone Pickins. The two have publicly disagreed over the quality and direction of the program, leading some to believe that Gundy’s tenure was tenuous considering the financial implications for the university.
The coaching offseason has already come and gone and Gundy remains with his alma mater and is working on a deal that would keep him through his 15th season as head coach.
Mike Gundy declined to discuss his 2-year contract extension today, but #OKstate spokesman Gary Shutt confirms "we are finalizing details."

A agreement appears to be eminent, and while tension might still exist between the programs most successful coach and its most vocal financial supporter, Gundy’s 104-50 record speaks volumes to the job he has done taking over for Les Miles a dozen years ago.
