Over the last decade, Keiton Page has been a common denominator for Cowboy basketball through multiple coaching changes. Today, new head coach Mike Boynton announced Page was being retained on his staff as Director of Basketball Operations - the same position he held last season under Brad Underwood.
"Being around Keiton, it doesn't take you very long to realize that he's a Cowboy," Boynton said. "He has a tremendous passion for this University and this program. He's served in every role imaginable for this program over the last 10 years, and he's someone that we would have really missed had we not been able to keep around. He's an unbelievable asset, and no one can better tell the story of what it's like to be a Cowboy than Keiton Page. I really look forward to working with him in this new role."
Since his playing career ended five years ago, Page has held a variety of positions in the basketball program. In addition to his time as D.B.O. last year, Page was an assistant director of strength and conditioning on Travis Ford's staff. Oklahoma State's release today indicated Page will have a good deal of responsibility on the recruiting front, as well as video scouting, game prep and individual skill development.
"I'm extremely excited to work with coach Mike," Page said. "What stands out most about him is how much of a people-person he is, and how much he shows the players that he genuinely cares as much about them off the court as on it. I was recently in all of these players' shoes, and I can relate to just about everything they're going through – the lows and the highs. So, I'm excited to join coach Mike in helping the next generation of Cowboys grow and develop into standouts on the court, in the classroom and in the world."
