Oklahoma State men’s basketball and coach Mike Boynton have agreed to a two-year contract extension through 2024, the team announced on Wednesday.

With the extension, Boynton’s annual salary is now $1.6 million, in addition to a $125,000 increase for each year.
“I am more excited than ever for what the possibilities are for this program,” Boynton said in a statement. “Together, we will get back to the top of the college basketball mountain and bring a championship to Stillwater.”
Boynton, in his first season leading the team, saw the Cowboys post a 21-15 overall record (NIT play included) and an 8-10 mark in Big 12 play. Oklahoma State recorded the first ever regular season sweep of Kansas in the Bill Self era of Jayhawks basketball during the regular season, in addition to a road win over West Virginia and a home upset of Texas Tech. The Cowboys ended the year with four wins over top 10 opponents — a single season program record.
The Cowboys, after narrowly missing the NCAA Tournament, made it to the third round of the National Invitation Tournament, losing to Western Kentucky.
Nonetheless, it was a season that far exceeded expectations after the departure of coach Brad Underwood following the 2016-17 season.
Boynton’s previous contract, which he signed in December 2017, was through 2022 and worth approximately $400,000 a year.
