STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma State has hired Stephen F. Austin coach Brad Underwood as its men’s basketball coach.

Oklahoma State made the announcement in a news release Monday.

In three seasons at SFA, Underwood compiled an 89-14 record and set a program record with an .864 winning percentage. The Lumberjacks lost to Notre Dame 76-75 in the NCAA Tournament on Sunday.

The three-time Southland Conference Coach of the Year went 53-1 in league play and posted a 59-1 record against Southland foes. He led the Lumberjacks to three straight conference regular season and tournament titles.

Before that, Underwood was associate head coach for a season at South Carolina and a year at Kansas State.

Underwood played at Kansas State from 1984-1986.

Oklahoma State will formally introduce Underwood on Wednesday. The school parted ways with Travis Ford last week.
