Oklahoma State fired men’s basketball coach Mike Boynton after seven seasons, ESPN reported Thursday.

The Cowboys finished 12-20 overall and 4-14 in the Big 12 this season, which ended Tuesday with a 77-62 loss to UCF in the first round of the conference tournament. Oklahoma State lost its last six games and eight of 10.

Boynton, 42, leaves Stillwater with a 119-109 record (51-75 Big 12) that included 20-win seasons in 2017-18, 2020-21 and 2022-23.

The Cowboys made the 2021 NCAA Tournament as a No. 4 seed before losing in the second round. They played in the NIT in 2018 and 2023.

It was the first head coaching job for Boynton, who was an assistant for former Cowboys coach Brad Underwood in 2016-17. He was previously an assistant at Stephen F. Austin, his alma mater South Carolina, Wofford and Coastal Carolina.
