New, 2 comments

Eddie coached our beloved Cowboys for 16 years and finished with a record of 368-151. He led Oklahoma State to the Tourney 13 of 16 times and that included 2 Final Four appearances in 1995 and 2004. He was named coach of the year twice and was the first coach in the history of college basketball to lead four different programs to the NCAA tournament. His 804 wins ranks him eighth all time. Truly a living legend. Congrats Coach.
