National College Football reporter Brett McMurphy reported Tuesday evening that Mike Gundy will remain the head coach at Oklahoma State, after reportedly denying an offer from Tennessee.

Gundy chimed in after news broke nationally:

The offer that Gundy turned down was reportedly worth six years and $42M. After a whirlwind of a Tuesday afternoon that had everybody’s heads spinning, it appears that Oklahoma State fans can finally relax.

Lots of speculation will come of this in the coming days. Lots of questions will (rightfully) be asked. Why did he flirt with Tennessee again? What would it take to lure Gundy from Stillwater? Was it ever that serious?

We’ll get answers soon, but for now, everybody take a deep breath and enjoy a beverage of your choice. The coaching rumors are over.
