(Stillwater-AP) -- Oklahoma State basketball coach Eddie Sutton says he may not stay long enough to get 800 career wins.

That could mean Sutton, a former coach at Arkansas, will retire in two or three years.

Sutton has 737 career wins and would need to average about 20 wins per season for three more seasons, but he says that's a long way off.

Sutton signed a four year deal last year that runs through 2007 and says he will coach next year. After next year, though, he says he'll wait and see.
