Five years after hiring offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich from a Division II program in Pennsylvania, Mike Gundy wouldn't rule out the possibility of filling his defensive coordinator vacancy with a candidate from a lower level again: "Oh, I've looked at every level. I mean, why not? Still 11 people on the field, right? I mean, I don't have a problem with that. There's a lot of damn good coaches, coaching at lower levels that have never gotten a chance. I'm not going to say I'm going to do it, but why would I want to say that a guy that coaches at a smaller school can't do as well as a guy coaching at a larger school?" Gundy admitted the unprecedented move to hire a play-caller out of Division II came with criticism: "At the time that I did it, everybody thought I was a moron, including people that are on this campus. I got beat up, man. My assistant here, she handles all my e-mail. She told me never to do that again, because she can't all the negative email I got the first three months I got after hiring him. … But it worked out pretty good, (Yurcich) is one of the, what, top five or 10 coordinators in the country. What it proved is this: there are a lot of damn good football coaches that just haven't had the chance."

Mike Gundy, on bringing in former Montana and Colorado School of Mines coach Bob Stitt as an offensive analyst to Oklahoma State: "He was doing basketball on grass before we were doing basketball on grass," Gundy said. "He's perfect for us." Despite having never coached in the FBS, Stitt has long been regarded for his innovative offensive mind. His "fly-sweep-touch base" invention, for example, became a staple in Dana Holgorsen's offense at West Virginia. Said Gundy: "I plan on putting (Stitt) in there with (offensive coordinator Mike) Yurcich to look at what we're doing and telling us what the hell we're doing wrong and give us some good ideas."
