Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder said in a statement Tuesday that Travis Ford will remain Oklahoma State’s head basketball coach, despite reports and rumors saying Ford’s job is in jeopardy.

Ford has a 143-91 record in seven years at Oklahoma State. His Cowboys went 18-14 this season and dropped seven of their final eight games, including a loss in the round of 64 in the NCAA Tournament.

His Oklahoma State teams have reached the NCAA Tournament five times, but have just one win. Some fans are disappointed that the Cowboys haven’t done more, despite having talent such as current NBA players Marcus Smart and Markel Brown.

Ford signed an extension in 2009 that lasts through 2019. Holder said the school is "fully committed to coach Ford and supporting him and our basketball program."
