Oklahoma State University have agreed to a contract extension with head basketball coach Mike Boynton.

The two-year extension keeps Boynton in Stillwater through the 2023-2024 season and increases his annual salary to $1.6 million. Boynton will be paid a $125,000 increase for each subsequent year.

“I want to first thank coach Holder, President Burns Hargis and the OSU Board of Regents,” Boynton said. “One year ago they provided me with the opportunity of a lifetime. They believed in me, and their leap of faith is greatly appreciated. Today’s announcement signifies another level of commitment - a commitment to our staff, our program and our unified vision of what Cowboy basketball can become.”

Boynton led the Cowboys to 21 wins in his first season at the helm. The Cowboys finished sixth in the Big 12 after being picked to finish last in the preseason poll. The Cowboys became the first team to sweep Kansas in conference play under Jayhawk head coach Bill Self and won a school record four games against top 10 opponents. Their season ended in the third round of the National Invitation Tournament.

“I am more excited than ever for what the possibilities are for this program,” Boynton said. “Together, we will get back to the top of the college basketball mountain and bring a championship to Stillwater.”
