David Taylor being introduced as the new head coach of Cowboy Wrestling will have to wait another day.

Oklahoma State originally announced Taylor’s introductory news conference would be Thursday afternoon inside the Boone Pickens Stadium west end zone team room, but Thursday morning OSU updated that the event will be postponed until 10:30 a.m. Friday. The release said the delay was because of airplane mechanical issues with Taylor’s flight to Stillwater.

Taylor was announced as OSU’s eighth head wrestling coach late Monday night, replacing John Smith, who retired last month after leading the Cowboys for 33 years. Taylor, 33, won a gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, and he was also a two-time individual NCAA champion and two-time Dan Hodge Trophy winner at Penn State. This is his first head coaching job.

The event will still be opened to the public. For fans planning to attend the introductory news conference, parking will be available in Lots 9, 9A and 99, which can be accessed from Washington Street between the Wes Watkins Center and the Greenwood Tennis Center, next to the Sherman E. Smith Training Center. Fans can then cross the street and enter Boone Pickens Stadium through Gate 14 on the northwest side near the Barry Sanders statue. From there, turn right, go down the escalator, and then turn right again to find the team room. Fans exit using the same escalator and gate.

The press conference will also be live streamed on YouTube here.
