OSU football: Through 3 games, Mike Gundy feels 'great' about offensive coordinator Kasey Dunn
STILLWATER — The Oklahoma State offense was dealt three injury blows through the first 30 minutes of football this season: quarterback Spencer Sanders and linemen Hunter Anthony and Cole Birmingham.
With that, the offense sputtered at times in the first two games, but found its footing in last Saturday’s win over Kansas.
Through it all, coach Mike Gundy has been more than pleased with how new offensive coordinator Kasey Dunn has handled his troops.
“He’s doing great,” Gundy said. “The first couple games were rough on him.

“Kansas is having a difficult time right now — I’m not trying to say anything that I don’t think anybody knows — but we still played pretty good offensively, fundamentally. We were able to block, cover guys up. The skill guys made plays.”
After the week off, Oklahoma State heads into the toughest stretch of its schedule with a road game at Baylor on Oct. 17, followed by home games against Iowa State and Texas, then a trip to Kansas State.
“The real challenge is gonna be the next three or four weeks,” Gundy said. “We’ll find out where we’re at. I think (Dunn) has been a good leader for our staff. I think he’s been a good communicator for the players on offense. I think he’s a good play-caller. And his demeanor’s really good on game day.”
