Ex-Tech Coach James Dickey Headed to OSU

Former Texas Tech head basketball coach James Dickey will be reunited with his mentor, Eddie Sutton, as an assistant coach at Oklahoma State, officials announced on Wednesday.

"I've been blessed to have so many excellent assistant coaches in my career, but James is definitely at the top of this list," Sutton said. "Our players got to know him while he was broadcasting the games last year, and they're very excited about him becoming part of our basketball family."

Dickey, who was an assistant to Sutton from 1981 - 1989, coached at Texas Tech from 1991 until 2001, when he was fired and replaced by former Indiana coach Bob Knight. He amassed a 166 - 124 record during the 10 year span and took his team to the NCAA Tournament twice.

During the 1995 - 1996 season, his team went 30 - 2 and advanced to the Sweet 16 round of the big dance. Dickey called joining the OSU basketball staff a great honor.

"I'm tremendously excited about once again working for Coach Sutton," Dickey said. "He has been my mentor and the most positive coaching influence during my career. I look forward to working with the coaching staff, as well as the returning student-athletes and incoming players."

Dickey, who earned a bachelor's degree from Central Arkansas in 1976, got into coaching after joining the staff at Harding College in Searcy, Arkansas, during the 1976 - 1977 season. He became head coach at Harding in 1977 and became an assistant coach at Central Arkansas two seasons later.

Dickey joined Sutton at Arkansas before the 1981 - 1982 season and moved with him to Kentucky in 1986. Sutton left Kentucky in 1989, and Dickey was offered an assistant position at Texas Tech in 1990.
