Kasey Dunn has been promoted to offensive coordinator of the Oklahoma State football team.

Kasey Dunn has been promoted within the Oklahoma State coaching staff.

Coach Mike Gundy announced Monday that Dunn is the offensive coordinator of the Cowboy football team, according to a press release from OSU Athletics. He is replacing Sean Gleeson, who has been hired as the offensive coordinator at Rutgers.

When the Cowboys were preparing to face Texas A&M in the Texas Bowl on Dec. 27, Dunn was expected to leave OSU after the game. The news broke Dec. 20 that Dunn was hired as the offensive coordinator on Marcus Arroyo's UNLV staff. However, Dunn's plans changed; he decided to stay in Stillwater.

Dunn has coached OSU's receivers since 2011, and he was promoted to associate head coach in March 2019. Biletnikoff winners James Washington and Justin Blackmon, as well as NFL receivers Chris Lacy and Marcell Ateman, have played for him. In 2017, 247Sports and FootballScoop named Dunn the national Wide Receivers Coach of the Year.

"We have been in Stillwater going on 10 years and have loved raising our family here and being part of the OSU community," Dunn said in the press release. "We have an excellent returning cast of players and coaches and a supportive fan base, which makes this an exciting time for Cowboy football. I'm honored to get this opportunity and thankful to Coach Holder and Coach Gundy."
