Mike Boynton’s contract extension has been made official.

Oklahoma State released details of the deal Monday afternoon that Boynton was in fact getting a 7-year extension and a bump in pay to $3 million annually through the 2027-28 season, which was previously reported.

“I’m very thankful to Coach [Mike] Holder for his initial vision back in 2017, and his leadership team, as well as President [Burns] Hargis and the Board of Regents for the opportunity to keep building on what we’ve done so far,” Boynton said in the release. “I appreciate all of the fans, alumni and lettermen for loving this program so much, which has given us a story to tell recruits. I’m honored to continue to represent Mr. [Henry] Iba and Coach [Eddie] Sutton’s program, and for the privilege of mentoring the young men who believe in our vision.

“My family and I are excited for the work that lies in front of us, and looking forward to celebrating much success with all of the great people we’ve grown to love over the last four years.”

Boynton’s new deal starts July 1, keeping his current pandemic-caused 25% voluntary salary reduction in place through June 30.

Boynton released a tweet shortly after OSU’s announcement that said “Born and Raised by Brooklyn, NY. Nurtured in Columbia, SC. But… THIS. IS. HOME!”

“This is a great day for Cowboy basketball,” OSU athletic director Mike Holder said in the release. “I’m reminded of Eddie Sutton’s first news conference in 1990 when he encouraged our fans to buy their tickets while they were still available. That was good advice in 1990, and it is good advice in 2021. We’re blessed to have a rising star as our leader and his team will make games in Gallagher-Iba Arena can’t-miss events. Get your tickets, this will be a lot of fun.”
