Oklahoma State University has found its next basketball coach.
The school announced Friday that it was promoting Cowboys assistant Mike Boynton Jr. to the head coaching role to replace Brad Underwood, who left after one season to take the Illinois job.

We’re excited to announce Mike Boynton as our new basketball coach. Boynton is one of the top up-and-coming coaches in the business

Boynton, who joined the Oklahoma State last season, spent the previous three years on Underwood’s staff at Stephen F. Austin, where they helped the Lumberjacks to three straight NCAA Tournament appearances.

A South Carolina graduate, Boynton was a four-year player for the Gamecocks from 2001-04, appearing in 125 games and helping the Gamecocks reach the NCAA Tournament as a senior.

He started his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Furman, then spent three seasons as an assistant at Coastal Carolina and one year at Wofford before returning to his alma mater as an assistant coach from 2008-13.
