STILLWATER, Okla. – Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy has built up a long and impressive resume during his 17 seasons at the helm of the Cowboy football program.
It is well-known that he is the winningest coach in program history and has coached the Cowboys to school-record streaks of 16 straight bowl games and winning seasons, and also that his teams have put up some of the best numbers in the country on both offense and defense during his tenure.
