Former OSU player Brian Montonati, who is playing professionally in Italy: "I'm devastated. I don't understand it. I don't think Sean was given a fair shot. Out of respect for what the Suttons have done to build that program, Sean deserved a couple more years... It's a sad deal the way this has gone down. You never heard about Oklahoma State much for years until coach (Eddie) Sutton got there. Gallagher-Iba Arena is what it is today because of what coach Sutton and Sean have done. I don't agree with this decision at all. Sean is the most competitive person I've met in my life. They were playing well late in the season. He deserved a chance to fulfill his contract.”

Former OSU player Victor Williams: "I don't think it's fair. You could see late in the season they were playing much better. He just needed a little more time to leave his mark.”

Former OSU player Daniel Bobik, shooting guard on the 2004 Final Four team: "I'm loyal to the Sutton family but I'm also loyal to the school. I feel bad for Sean. I really care about him. I feel bad it didn't work for both parties. It could have been a good fit for Sean and the school. I hope the program can bounce back from this.”

Former OSU regent Fred Harlin: "I don't like to see anyone lose their job. But the program has to succeed at a national level. Sometimes decisions have to be made that aren't popular.

OSU athletic director Mike Holder: "This is my job, to make tough decisions. I feel like it's in the best interest of our basketball program.”

OSU freshman Marshall Moses, while shooting in the gym with teammate Anthony Brown: "We're here working out, we're in the weight room.
