It’s official. Mike Boynton and Oklahoma State have come to terms on a contract extension.

The deal is for seven years and will increase his salary to $3 million dollars per year. This comes off a fourth season as head coach where Boynton led the Cowboys to their first win in the NCAA tournament since 2009 and going 11-7 in the Big 12 conference where the Cowboys finished fifth.

According to Matt Norlander of CBS, Boynton was contacted by multiple programs but made the decision to remain in Stillwater.

Here’s what Boynton had to say in the release from the Athletic Department:

“I’m very thankful to coach Holder for his initial vision back in 2017, and his leadership team, as well as President Hargis and the Board of Regents for the opportunity to keep building on what we’ve done so far,” Boynton said. “I appreciate all of the fans, alumni and lettermen for loving this program so much, which has given us a story to tell recruits. I’m honored to continue to represent Mr. Iba and coach Sutton’s program, and for the privilege of mentoring the young men who believe in our vision. My family and I are excited for the work that lies in front of us, and looking forward to celebrating much success with all of the great people we’ve grown to love over the last four years.” {okstate.com}
