Pickens praises new coach

— Oklahoma State megabooster T. Boone Pickens said Wednesday he had little input regarding the hiring of Travis Ford as the Cowboys' basketball coach.

But Pickens praised Ford's hiring - along with that of university President Burns Hargis - as potentially historic ones for his alma mater.

"It will go down in history that Burns Hargis and Travis Ford will be the two best hires we've made in the last 50 years," Pickens said after speaking at an energy conference sponsored by Oklahoma State's Spears School of Business.
