Oklahoma State University is expected to part ways with head men's basketball coach Travis Ford, According to a report from ESPN's Jeff Goodman. 

A source close to the situation told our Dean Blevins the money is raised and the decision is made. 

Ford's expected to meet with OSU athletic director Mike Holder on Monday where a decision will likely be finalized. 

This kind of report isn't shocking to anyone who's been following the OSU basketball team this season, as the Cowboys finished with a 12-20 record and failed to qualify for the NCAA Tournament. Ford holds a 155-111 record since taking over the program eight seasons ago.

Ford has 3 years remaining on a contract that pays him $2.4 million a year.  The buyout would stand at $7.2 million, but that may or may not be the final amount if OSU chooses to part ways with him.
