Gundy is also represented by agent Jimmy Sexton, whose clients include NFL players Tim Tebow and Trent Richardson as well as college coaches Nick Saban, Lane Kiffin, Jimbo Fisher and Steve Spurrier, among others. He has a history of floating clients’ names for other jobs in order to get a big pay raise. Sexton negotiated Gundy’s new contract last winter, a lucrative deal that earned him $3.275 million this season and goes through 2019.

Gundy became OSU’s all-time winningest coach this season and has taken the Cowboys to their greatest heights during his tenure. OSU captured its first Big 12 championship in 2011 and has posted a 48-16 record over the past five seasons.

OSU went 7-5 this season and finished tied for third in the Big 12 standings. The Cowboys will play Purdue in the Heart of Dallas Bowl on Jan. 1.
