Oklahoma State and head basketball coach Travis Ford have officially decided to part ways after eight seasons according to an official release from the school. Our Dean Blevins originally reported that OSU would be moving on from Ford last week. 

Ford leaves OSU after accumulating a 155-110 (63-75) record as the coach of the Cowboys and only notching one NCAA Tournament win. OSU is coming off of its worst finish under Ford, finishing 12-20 (3-15) in a season that was riddled with injuries.

“I like Travis Ford and his family,” OSU athletic director Mike Holder said in a press release. “He worked very hard at his job. Unfortunately, we have to move on.”
