In the midst of political unrest, a situation played out gaining the attention of the national spotlight. This issue placed Mike Gundy and star running back Chiba Hubbard at odds.
The incident sparked an internal review. In conclusion, the review failed to produce signs or indications of racism within the football program. Regardless, it appears as though repercussions are being handed out following the photo that surfaced of the Oklahoma State Cowboys’ Head Coach wearing an OAN t-shirt.
Mike Gundy’s contract shortened from 5-year rollover to 4-years w/pay cut after internal review, sources told @Stadium. In 2019 Gundy made $5.125M. Review launched after RB Chuba Hubbard tweeted “I will not be doing anything w/OSU until things CHANGE” after Gundy wore OAN T-shirt— Brett McMurphy (@Brett_McMurphy) July 3, 2020
According to Brett McMurphy, the previously agreed upon 5-year contract of Gundy will be shortened by a single year. In conjunction, the Head Coach will also receive a pay cut in the amount of $1M. Apparently, the person at the helm of the program, Gundy, suggested the changes himself.
Over the past 15 years, Mike Gundy has held the position of head coach of the football program at Oklahoma State University. Easily the most prolific to hold the title, Gundy claims a 129-64 overall record. Entering the 2020 season, the Cowboys are expected to compete for the title of Big 12 Champions.
