There is nowhere Mike Gundy would rather be than Oklahoma State.

Gundy is home, a native of Midwest City, Okla., and a former star quarterback at Oklahoma State (1986-89) who went on to become the school's leading career passer en route to guiding the Cowboys to three 10-win seasons.

Now, Gundy's coaching career is mimicking the same success he enjoyed as a player.

Mike Gundy enjoyed a steller career as a player at Oklahoma State, and he's having similar success as the Cowboys' coach. He began his career as receivers coach at Oklahoma State (1990-95) before ascending to offensive coordinator. Gundy then took jobs on the staffs at Baylor (1996) and Maryland (1997-2000). Gundy returned to Oklahoma State in 2001 as offensive coordinator under Les Miles before being elevated to coach after Miles left for LSU following the 2004 campaign.

Gundy has built on the success Miles started, guiding Oklahoma State to a 47-29 mark entering this season, with five bowl bids in six seasons.
