David Cason and Larry Blunt

The Oklahoma State Cowboys add David Cason and Larry Blunt as assistant coaches Monday. 

Coach Mike Boynton has hired two new assistants to his staff.

Boynton hired David Cason and Larry Blunt on Monday as assistant coaches on the Oklahoma State basketball staff. Other staff moves include Scott Sutton moving to Director of Basketball Administration and restoring Barry Hinson’s analyst position.

Cason was most recently at FIU, but also has stops at Texas, North Carolina, Notre Dame and VCU in his 25 years coaching.

“When it comes to versatility of experience, it doesn’t get much better than David Cason,” Boynton said. “Coach Cason has coached at every level of college basketball. He has proven time and time again that he has the ability to connect, recruit, develop, and coach elite players for more than 20 years and has been a part of over 400 wins in his career.”

Blunt helped found Orangeville Prep in Canada, and spent the last three seasons at Drake. Blunt helped lead the Bulldogs 26 wins in 2020 including a trip to the NCAA Tournament.

“His experience as an assistant at both Canisius and Drake, in addition to his experience running his own program, give me great confidence that he is ready to help us on our journey to build a champion in Stillwater,” Boynton said.
