Oklahoma State names Steve Lutz as new men's basketball coach

Oklahoma State has a new men’s basketball coach.

Steve Lutz was announced as the Cowboys’ 21st head coach on Monday afternoon.

"Coach Lutz is known as one of the hardest-working coaches in the business," OSU Director of Athletics Chad Weiberg said. "He has worked at all levels of college basketball and has deep ties to this part of the country, especially Texas. The work he has put into his career has resulted in success as a head coach and why I believe he is the right person to be the leader of Cowboy Basketball."

Lutz comes to OSU after just one year at Western Kentucky, where he led the Hilltoppers to their first Conference USA title and first NCAA Tournament berth in 11 seasons.

Prior to that, he spent two seasons as head coach at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, leading them to two conference titles and two NCAA Tournament appearances.

Lutz was formerly an assistant coach at several schools, including Purdue, Creighton and SMU.

He takes over for Mike Boynton, who was let go on March 14 after seven seasons with OSU. The Cowboys finished last season with a record of 12 wins and 20 losses.
