The Oklahoma State basketball program could be narrowing in on its next head coach.
According to a report from ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, Cowboys alum Doug Gottlieb, who recently accepted a job with FOX Sports, will be interviewing for the head coaching job to replace Brad Underwood.
The vacancy suddenly occurred after Underwood left Oklahoma State to take the job at Illinois.

Gottlieb has no coaching experience, so it could be a risk for Oklahoma State, but he previously showed interest in the job before it went to Underwood.
But while Gottlieb has no personal experience leading a team, he is familiar with the coaching world. Gottlieb’s brother is currently an assistant at Oregon State, while his father, Bob, served as head coach at Jacksonville and UW-Milwaukee.
