Lutz selected to lead OSU

STILLWATER Oklahoma State Director of Athletics Chad Weiberg has hired Steve Lutz as the school’s 21st head men’s basketball coach, pending board approval.

“Coach Lutz is known as one of the hardest-working coaches in the business,” Weiberg said. “He has worked at all levels of college basketball and has deep ties to this part of the country, especially Texas. The work he has put into his career has resulted in success as a head coach and why I believe he is the right person to be the leader of Cowboy basketball.”

A rising star under Creighton’s Greg McDermott and a fifth-generation member of Henry Iba’s coaching tree (via Purdue’s Matt Painter), Lutz is off to a successful start to his own head coaching career with NCAA tournament appearances in each of his first three seasons.
