Barry Swtizer
I know he's technically a Football coach but every Sooner I know loves Barry Switzer. Plus, they'll get the overflow effect of people coming to Llyod Noble just to see the man. Can you say BUMP IN ATTENDANCE? he's not a basketball coach but honestly, I'm not sure that basketball experience is required at this point.

Gary Coleman
He's dead?? What? RIP little buddy.

Lon Kruger
Unless this is the best April Fools joke ever, this appears to be the choice.  I have to say,  I"m all for it.  He's 58 years old, will do little to energize their fan base and is rumored to be a lazy recruiter. What more could an Oklahoma State fan ask for?
