Mike Gundy will be staying on in Stillwater for the foreseeable future.

Oklahoma State announced Tuesday that the university and Gundy have agreed on a contract extension to keep the coach as the front-man of the Cowboys.

OSU officials say the extension is for 5 years and replaces Gundy's previous contract, which was slated to end in 2019. His salary in 2017 gets around a $300,000 bump to $4.2 million.

"Today is a good day for Oklahoma State football," said OSU athletic director Mike Holder. "The new contract recognizes Coach Gundy's success at building and sustaining a premier college football program and reflects our appreciation and our long-term commitment to Coach Gundy. Not only is he one of the best coaches in the country, he also does things the right way."

Gundy is both the winningest and longest-tenured head coach in Cowboy history, compiling a 104-50 record. He's 63-39 all-time in Big 12 play, including a 2011 conference title.

Gundy has also led Oklahoma State to 11 straight bowl appearances.
