OK State’s Gundy says he intends to stay
DALLAS (AP) — Mike Gundy says he intends remain at Oklahoma State amid a report that he was offered the Tennessee job.
Gundy said Thursday there was “no question” he planned to stay at his alma mater. The former Cowboys quarterback is the school’s winningest coach with an eight-year record of 66-35.
Speaking at a media event promoting the Heart of Dallas Bowl, Gundy also downplayed reports of a strained relationship with Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder. He said it was “a lot better than what people say.”
The Cowboys finished 7-5 a year after qualifying for the BCS and beating Stanford 41-38 in overtime in the Fiesta Bowl.
CBS Sports reported that Tennessee had offered Gundy the job. Gundy wouldn’t address the Tennessee situation specifically.
