KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Oklahoma State basketball head coach-designate Sean Sutton says he believes his father, Eddie Sutton, will coach for at least two more years.

Sean Sutton told reporters at the Big 12 media days in Kansas City, Missouri, his father may coach for three more years, depending on how he feels.

Sean Sutton says there's no truth to rumors his father will retire next month.

The 68-year-old Eddie Sutton didn't attend the conference because of severe back pain that's forced him to use a cane. He injured his back when he fell near his home earlier this month and was bedridden for a week.
