Oklahoma State regents tack year onto contract

TULSA, Okla. -- Regents for Oklahoma State University have approved a one-year contract extension for Cowboys football coach Les Miles.

The contract keeps Miles at Oklahoma State through 2010 and
includes options for two additional years. Terms of the contract
were not disclosed.

Regents also approved athletic director Harry Birdwell's
decision to name Sean Sutton as the replacement to his father,
Eddie Sutton, as the Cowboys' head basketball coach when Eddie
Sutton decides to retire. Sean Sutton will officially become head
coach-designate July 1.

"I think we have scored real high in the minds of these
coaches, particularly these young coaches like Sean and Les,"
Oklahoma State president David Schmidly said. "I think they feel
real good about their sons and daughters growing up in Stillwater
and going to school here."
