OSU coach Marty Lees looks on during the Oklahoma State vs. Saint Louis baseball game on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium in Stillwater.

Oklahoma State third base coach and recruiting coordinator Marty Lees has resigned from his position with the Cowboys per Rex Holt on his radio show, The Game on 94.3.

Lees was hired at OSU, for a second stint with the Cowboys, in July of 2019. Lees had previously been with the Cowboys as an assistant from 2013 to 2015 before taking over as head coach of Washington State.

“Marty Lees is a great coach, an outstanding recruiter and a tireless worker – he is also a great friend," coach Josh Holliday said. "He is a winner and a two-time national champion coach. We are very thankful for his contributions to the program. I wish him the best as he continues his coaching journey and pursues other opportunities.”

Lees departure leaves an open paid coaching vacancy for the Cowboys.

Matt Holliday and Robin Ventura both have unpaid positions on the staff, meaning it is likely one of them will assume Lees' spot. 

“I want to thank Oklahoma State for the wonderful time here in Stillwater," Lees said. "Thank you to Coach Holder, Josh Holliday and his staff. I loved every minute with OSU. I look forward to building on this great experience as we move forward.”
