Once, Mike Gundy's preoccupation with age sealed his place in Internet immortality when he shouted to a roomful of reporters, "I'm a man! I'm 40!" Five years later, it might have cost one of his Oklahoma State assistants a job. According to now-former defensive coordinator Bill Young, whose departure was confirmed by the university on Thursday, the decisive factor in his unemployment was his age.

Don't see Gundy trying run Boone because of age. Wonder if he thinks Boone's money would look better with a younger face?
If there is any evidence of this being true, Okie Lite could be in for some legal trouble...
couldnt be that his defenses weren't very good?
Oklahoma is an at will state and you can fire anyone for any reason that is not discriminatory and the person making the claim has the burden of proof. With age discrimination here, there usually has to be a payment trigger involved based on age. It usually isn't in a coach's contract that he gets a raise or retirement at a given age. There will likely be a lawsuit that will be settled long before trial because that is how the flawed system works.
Otherwise, a company can fire someone because they didn't like his aftershave when his defense was allowing 450 yards of offense.
I would gladly take Bill Young over Diaz for next year TBH
Wish we could find a way to bring him in as a LB coach.
If you look at stats adjusted to equalize pace and competition, his defenses were quite good.
This is so, but the Big XII is filled with teams that excel at pace and execution on the offensive side of the ball. His defenses were playing in an entire conference of statistical outliers production wise.
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
