#Hit. Ok­la­homa State coach Mike Gundy’s mul­let moves the nee­dle

The Denver Post - - SPORTS - By Nick Kos­mider

san an­to­nio» It’s al­most be­come more of a hash­tag than a hair­cut.

The #GundyMul­let — the throw­back, flared-out, rock ’n’ roll hair­cut sported by Ok­la­homa State foot­ball coach Mike Gundy — has be­come a so­cial me­dia sen­sa­tion this sea­son, and it shows no signs of slow­ing.

“Him wear­ing a mul­let?” said Ok­la­homa State cor­ner­back Ra­mon Richards, laugh­ing at the mere men­tion of his coach’s hair­style. “I’m not go­ing to say noth­ing. But if we con­tinue to have suc­cess, if he has the mul­let, let him keep the mul­let. I might get me a mul­let.”

Gundy’s mul­let, at least its be­gin­ning stages, made its first ap­pear­ance at Big 12 me­dia days in July. Leg­end has it that the hair­cut, bet­ter fit for fronting a Whites­nake cover band than coach­ing a foot­ball team, sprouted after Gundy’s son doubted he would con­tinue to grow out hair that was get­ting long in the back.

Never one to back down from a chal­lenge, Gundy kept let­ting the locks flow. Now they look like they could drag along the River Walk in San An­to­nio.

What’s next? A mo­hawk for CU coach Mike MacIn­tyre?
