STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma State coach Bob Simmons
received a contract extension Friday that will keep him as the
Cowboys' coach through at least 2005.

Simmons is in his fifth year as the Cowboys' coach.

The Board of Regents of Oklahoma State University approved the
extension that will cover seven years Friday.

Athletics director Terry Don Phillips said the school's goal is
to develop a consistent, winning program with integrity and
students who graduate.

"In order to accomplish this, we have to have stable
leadership," Philliips said. He said the extension further
stabilizes the program.

"High school recruits will know that Bob Simmons is with us for
the long term," he said.

Simmons said he and Phillips share the same goals about the
program's future.

"We want to continue to build this program the right way. We
obviously want a winning program but also one that exemplifies
integrity and graduates its players
