Earlier this week, it appeared that Mike Boynton had filled out his staff for his first season as head coach. Well, according to a couple reports, that isn’t going to happen.

Michael Fly has decided to remain at Florida Gulf Coast and will not be joining Mike Boynton's staff at Oklahoma State, per a source.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) May 19, 2017
It appears that FGCU made a counter offer to Fly that he couldn’t reject.
One has to wonder if Fly only accepted the OSU job as a means of leverage with the Eagles, but we will never know.
What we do know is that Boynton will continue to look for the last member of his staff and get the position filled as soon as he can.
