Oklahoma State basketball Head Coach Mike Boynton has received a contract extension. His new six year, $11.5 million contract will keep him in Stillwater through the 2023-24 season. According to an article from the tulsaworld.com, this contract extension signs Boynton on to coach the Pokes for an additional two seasons, and it nearly doubles the amount of money he will earn for doing so.
This contract extension comes on the heels of a loss to Western Kentucky in the NIT a week ago. While it was an up and down season for the Cowboys, Boynton helped the team set or tie a handful of Cowboy basketball records

After botching the contract situation with Brad Underwood a year ago, Mike Holder succeed in locking up Boynton long term. Next on the list for Boynton will be trying to haul in 4-star point guard Courtney Ramey, following the departure of Brandon Averette.
It was a long and surely stressful season for the first year head coach, one that ended in another postseason birth to the Cowboys. Now it’s time for coach Boynton to relax and celebrate #securingthebag with his family and friends.
