The Pawnee Pistol isn’t going anywhere.

Oklahoma State on Wednesday announced that Keiton Page would be staying on as an assistant under new head basketball coach Steve Lutz.

“After visiting with Keiton, it was clear that our values and priorities align,” Lutz said. “I’m delighted to have him on our bench. His work ethic, basketball knowledge, leadership skills and deep-rooted connection to Oklahoma State will be invaluable as we rebuild Cowboy Basketball.”

Now 35, Page spent 11 seasons in various support roles on OSU’s staff under Travis Ford, Brad Underwood and Mike Boynton before being promoted into one of Boynton’s assistant spots last spring.

Before all that, Page was a two-time All-Big 12 selection for the Cowboys during his career that spanned from 2008 to 2012. His 1,651 career points rank 10th in program history. Page put up 40 points against Texas in 2012, a point total that is tied for sixth in program history alongside performances from Cade Cunningham and JamesOn Curry.

A coach’s son, Page won a pair of 2A state titles at Pawnee before coming to Stillwater. He averaged 44.4 points a game as a senior, scoring 1,287 points in total — both state records.

His father, Davis, won six state titles as a coach, and Page’s grandfather, Howard Ray, was also a coach. Brady Page, Keiton’s brother, is the coach at Hennessey.

Page’s deep ties to the state’s basketball scene will be an invaluable asset in recruiting the state, and his long lineage of coaching certainly won’t hurt on the on-court side of things.

Page is the first confirmed assistant on Lutz’s staff, but reports surfaced Tuesday evening that Mississippi State associate head coach James Miller is set to join Lutz’s staff.
