Yesterday afternoon, former ESPN Dallas reporter and Baylor alum Matt Mosley tweeted out a rumor having to do with the current head coach of the Cowboys, Mike Gundy.
Nothing has happened yet. But I do think Mike Gundy is in play.— Matt Mosley (@mattmosley) December 5, 2016
This was initially brushed off with a collective laugh, until Robert Allen jumped in the mix. He did little to calm Oklahoma State fans with this tweet later that night.
Rumors look like more than rumors and Mike Gundy is apparently meeting with Baylor.— Robert Allen (@RAllenGoPokes) December 6, 2016
My exact quote in response to this was perfectly captured in a response to Mosley’s tweet.
Former Offensive Coordinator Todd Monken had something to say regarding this rumor.
Chances of Mike Gundy going to Baylor? pic.twitter.com/j5O86aWJmb— Todd Monken (@CoachToddMonken) December 5, 2016
Is there anybody Baylor isn’t considering for the head coaching job? At this point, it seems like we’ve heard just about every name from every mid-major school and beyond. In our opinion, nothing about this rumor makes sense. The general sense is that this is a scheme from Gundy to establish leverage with his employer. That might not be such a great idea, given the climate of the fanbase after a lack-luster coaching performance in Bedlam, and his already tumultuous relationship with namesake of the stadium he plays in.
That said, we don’t anticipate Gundy leaving. At least, not leaving for Baylor.
In case you need any reassuring...
