Add another postseason coaching award to Oklahoma State’s Mike Gundy trophy case.
Already the recipient of Eddie Robinson Coaching Award, Gundy took home the Paul “Bear” Bryant Coach of the Year Award. Oklahoma State finished the season 12-1 with a Big 12 title and Fiesta Bowl victory over Stanford.
“It’s been an unbelievable season,” Gundy said. “I don’t know that Oklahoma State’s ever been perceived the way we are now from coast to coast all through the country. I’m so proud of our team and the administration and coaches for getting to this level and continuing to work hard.”
Last year’s winner was Auburn’s Gene Chizik. That still makes us chuckle.

The postseason hardware is nice, but Gundy got what he deserved most this offseason as well: a long-term extension that will reportedly take him through 2019.
