“This show will provide fans with more behind-the-scenes access to our program than they’ve ever had before,” said Gundy. “It gives people the opportunity to sit in the room with us as we move through unprecedented times and plan for a season that will be unlike any other.”
Since Gundy became head coach in 2005, Oklahoma State has enjoyed the most successful, extended run in its history, with seven AP top 20 finishes, four appearances in New Year’s Six bowl games, six seasons with at least 10 total wins, and an outright Big 12 Championship in 2011. Entering his 30th season in Stillwater and his 16th as head coach, Gundy is the winningest coach in Oklahoma State history. Among active coaches, he ranks sixth nationally in victories at his current school.
Gundy, known for his mullet hairstyle and unique personality as much as his high-level coaching and player development, took over the Oklahoma State program from Les Miles, who was the Cowboys head coach from 2001-2004. After 11 seasons as head coach at LSU, Miles became head coach at Kansas in 2019, where he and the Jayhawk program were the focus of Miles to Go, a behind-the-scenes documentary series also produced by ESPN+, Sports & Story and JM Associates, and available exclusively on Big 12 Now on ESPN+. Miles to Go was one of the most popular original programs on ESPN+ last fall.
