This morning we published a story about the possibility of Oklahoma State Head Coach Mike Gundy leaving his alma mater and becoming the new head coach at Baylor.
A few minutes ago, any such rumors were put to bed.
It started out with OSU graduate Brett McMurphy shooting down the Gundy to Baylor rumor.
Oklahoma State’s Mike Gundy “not involved” in Baylor opening, source told @ESPN— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) December 6, 2016
Carson Cunningham made us hesitate a little bit.
Pat Jones says Baylor has made an offer to Mike Gundy & it is significant. “When I heard the numbers I thought, ‘Woa’, you gotta listen."— Carson Cunningham (@KOCOCarson) December 6, 2016
But in the end, Baylor hired former Temple head coach Matt Rhule to be the next coach of the football program.
Oklahoma State may not be out of the woods yet though. Pat Jones, former head coach of the Cowboys, says there is another destination Gundy may have in mind this offseason.
This didn’t take long, Pat Jones: "Oregon might be in this thing. Possibly has gotten involved with Mike [Gundy]. Keep your eye on Oregon."— Carson Cunningham (@KOCOCarson) December 6, 2016
Oregon makes more sense to me for Gundy to go to over Baylor. Plus, if Gundy likes the uniform combos he has at his disposal now, just imagine what it’ll be like in Eugene.
We will keep an eye on the story and update you as information becomes available.
