WELCOME BOWL EVENTS HONORS BOWL HISTORY SPECIAL THANKS
Gundy has coached Oklahoma State to four bowl games now referred
to as New Year’s Six since 2010 (2010 Cotton Bowl, 2012 Fiesta
Bowl, 2014 Cotton Bowl and 2016 Sugar Bowl) and has led the Cowboys
to bowl games in 13 consecutive seasons – a school record.
Included among his career coaching accolades are 2011 National
Coach of the Year, 2010 Big 12 Coach of the Year and 2015 AFCA
Region 4 Coach of the Year.
Gundy immediately joined the Oklahoma State football staff at
the age of 23. He coached the receivers in 1990, the quarterbacks
from 1991-1993 and in 1995, and served as offensive coordinator
during the 1994 season in the final year for Gundy’s college coach,
Pat Jones. Gundy coached in Stillwater under each of the three previous
Cowboy head coaches (Jones, Bob Simmons and Les Miles).
He spent one season at Baylor (1996) as quarterbacks coach and
passing game coordinator before heading to the ACC, where he
coached at Maryland from 1997-2000. He returned to Stillwater in
2001 as assistant head coach and offensive coordinator, and he also
coached OSU quarterbacks.
Gundy is just the third Oklahoma State graduate to assume the
head coaching duties in Stillwater. Jim Lookabaugh (1939-49) and
Floyd Gass (1969-71) were the others.
Gundy and his wife, Kristen (also an OSU graduate), have three
children, Gavin, Gunnar and Gage.
