Reports: Oklahoma State to hire Western Kentucky’s Steve Lutz

"steve lutz"

Oklahoma State is hiring Western Kentucky’s Steve Lutz as its new men’s basketball coach, according to multiple media reports on Monday.

Lutz, 51, coached the Hilltoppers for one season, when they went 22-12, won the Conference USA tournament and advanced to the NCAA Tournament, where they lost to No. 2 seed Marquette in the first round on March 22.

He spent the previous two seasons in his first head coaching position, guiding Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to seasons of 23 and 24 wins, two Southland Conference tournament titles and berths in the NCAA Tournament.

Lutz has compiled a record of 69-35 in three seasons after gaining experience as an assistant at Incarnate Word (four seasons), SMU (four), Creighton (seven) and Purdue (four), where he helped recruit National Player of the Year Zach Edey.

Oklahoma State fired Mike Boynton after seven seasons. His teams went 119-109 overall, 51-75 in the Big 12 Conference. The Cowboys went 12-20 (4-14 Big 12) this season.

Lutz’s contract buyout from Western Kentucky is about $2 million before April 30, and his new contract is for five years, according to media reports.
