Oklahoma State working on new contract for Mike Gundy
Mike Gundy has called Oklahoma State his “New York Yankees job.” He wants to stay in Stillwater long-term. Boone Pickens (and OSU in general) wants Gundy in Stillwater long-term after he led the Cowboys to their first outright conference title and a trip to the Fiesta Bowl.
And the school is now in the beginning stages of working on a new contract.
Here is the statement OSU director of communications Gary Shutt released on the matter:
“We certainly are pleased with Coach Gundy and the entire coaching staff. This year has been historic for Oklahoma State’s football program. Our program is well positioned for continued success. As we said we would do a few weeks ago, now that the season is over, we are reviewing Coach Gundy’s contract. We also have begun discussions with his representative. A new contract reflecting the success we have enjoyed the past three years and expect to continue for years to come is being discussed. We are striving to have a new long-term contract for Coach Gundy in place soon. In that regard, we will not discuss specific details at this time, as it is our practice to refrain from negotiating contracts in the media. We will announce the details of the contract when it is completed.”
Gundy’s 2011 salary is $2.1 million. Here’s what all the coaches in the Big 12 made this year, according to USA Today’s football coach salary database (a very handy tool, by the way)
