Oklahoma State OT Victor Salako was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

The 6-foot-6, 335-pounder began his career at UAB before transferring when the Blazers discontinued football. Salako moved to Oklahoma State, where he was a two-year starter. Salako, a second-team All-Big 12 pick last year, auditioned for scouts at last month's East-West Shrine Game.

CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler believes that Oklahoma State TE Blake Jarwin's "raw athletic traits are draftable."

Unfortunately, Jarwin won't be able to display his athletic prowess at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis later this month, as he did not receive an invitation to the annual scouting event. Brugler counts the 6-foot-5, 248-pounder's non-invite as one of the more notable snubs. Because he was not used heavily as an offensive contributor during his time with the Cowboys -- for his career, he holds a 41-616-5 receiving line -- strong testing results would greatly help his draft stock. He figures to take part in Oklahoma State's Pro Day later this spring as he tries to open a few NFL eyes.

CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler was surprised that Oklahoma State RB Chris Carson was invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

As Brugler notes, Carson wasn't Oklahoma State's leading rusher this past season. He wasn't even their second-leading rusher. No, the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder's 82 carries in 2016 were good for third-most on the team. He turned those totes of the rock into 559 yards rushing (6.8 YPC) and nine touchdowns. While that YPC number is shiny enough, in a larger sample size of 131 carries in 2015, Carson managed just 3.9 yards on an average rush. It's unlikely that he hears his name called at the Draft.

Oklahoma State S Jordan Sterns was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

Sterns led the Cowboys with 101 tackles last year. He chipped in three interceptions and five pass breakups in earning a first-team All-Big 12 nod. Sterns competed in the Reese's Senior Bowl last month. The 6-foot, 205-pounder excels in the box, but must work on his coverage assignments.

Oklahoma State hired Southern Miss WR coach/special teams coordinator John Wozniak to serve as RB coach.

Wozniak got his start in coaching as a graduate assistant with the Cowboys in 2004. Since then, he has found work on the sidelines of Georgia Southern, LSU, Memphis and Alabama (among others). In a statement, Wozniak said, "Being around Coach Gundy in 2004, I had a lot of respect for him as a football mind, and more importantly, as a man. I knew that if I ever had a chance to work with him again, that I definitely wanted to do that."

Oklahoma State hired Arizona State OL coach/run-game coordinator Josh Henson to serve as OL coach.

The Sun Devils hardly knew him. Arizona State had just hired Henson away from Oklahoma State in mid-January. That marriage lasted under a month, as Henson is now set to return to Stillwater to coach up the Cowboys' offensive line. This past season, he served as an analyst for HC Mike Gundy. Henson has extensive coaching experience beyond the offensive line -- he worked as Mizzou's offensive coordinator from 2009-2015.

Oklahoma State graduate T Matthew Mucha has left the team.

Mucha played sparingly after taking a redshirt as a freshman in 2014. He will not be transferring, but rather hanging up his cleats for good. With both the 6-foot-5, 300-pound Mucha and G Jesse Robinson doing likewise, Oklahoma State's depth along the offensive line thins by degrees. Neither of these departures should be considered truly damaging.

Oklahoma State graduate G Jesse Robinson left the team.

Robinson will be foregoing his remaining collegiate eligibility, meaning that his football career is now done. The 6-foot-5, 313-pounder started nine games during his time at Oklahoma State and appeared in 10 games this past season.

Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy is intrigued by Oklahoma State freshman WR LC Greenwood's potential in the Cowboys' offense.

Along with incoming freshman wideouts Cedarian Lamb and Charleston Rambo, who sided with conference rival Oklahoma, Cassidy sees the Cowboys' Greenwood as a potential standout wide receiver in the Big 12 for the coming years. Cassidy is keen on the 6-foot-3, 203-pounder's length. His outlet ranks Greenwood as the No. 56 overall receiver in this class, but there is potential here beyond that number.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Oklahoma State has fired OL coach Greg Adkins.

The Tulsa World was first on this news, later confirmed by ESPN. As of yet, there has been no confirmation from the university. Adkins has served on HC Mike Gundy's staff each of the past two seasons. The Cowboys have cycled through offensive line coaches in five of the last six years.

Oklahoma State sophomore RB Justice Hill will miss spring practices after undergoing a shoulder procedure.

Cowboys coach Mike Gundy expects him to be fully healthy for summer camp. Hill broke Thurman Thomas' true freshman school record by running for 1,142 yards last season. That work helped Hill earn Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year honors.

Oklahoma State four-star 2017 verbal WR commit Tylan Wallace said that the Cowboys on-field work in 2016 only furthered the strength of his pledge.

Wallace went so far as to say that if there had been a December signing period (the concept has begun to gain steam), he would have jumped at the chance to put pen to paper with the Cowboys. Said the 6-foot, 182-pounder, "Seeing what I saw on the field this season with OSU made my commitment even stronger, and I would have been really excited to sign in December if I could have." He ranks as Rivals' No. 182 overall prospect in the 2017 class.

Oklahoma State OC Mike Yurcich removed his name from consideration for Auburn’s OC job.

Auburn will look elsewhere for Rhett Lashlee's heir. Yurcich, a 2016 Broyles Award nominee (nation's top assistant coach), presided over the No. 14 offense in the country this past season. With QB Mason Rudolph and WR James Washington heading back to Stillwater, the Pokes will be even more explosive in 2017.
Jan 18 - 4:33 PM

Lauren Rew of FM 107.7 The Franchise in Oklahoma City reports that Auburn has interviewed Oklahoma State OC Mike Yurcich for their open position.

Yurcich -- or whomever Auburn ends up hiring -- will take over for Tigers OC Rhett Lashlee, who jumped ship for UConn earlier this offseason. Yurcich was a 2016 nominee for the Broyles Award (handed out annually to the nation's top assistant coach) and helped forge an offense which ranked 14th in the country in total offense this past season. He has been with the Cowboys since 2013. One name that has already reportedly been nixed from the running at Auburn -- that of former Baylor HC Art Briles.

Arizona State hired Oklahoma State offensive analyst Josh Henson to serve as OL coach and run-game coordinator.

Henson had acted as offensive analyst for the Cowboys each of the past two seasons. Prior to his work in Stillwater, he served as offensive coordinator at Missouri from 2009-2015. He wasn't kept on staff in the coaching transition from Gary Pinkel to Barry Odom, at which point he moved on to Oklahoma State. At Arizona State he will be replacing OL coach Chris Tomsen, who is taking a job at TCU. In a statement, Henson said, "One of the things that attracted me to ASU is that Coach Graham has a track record of winning wherever he's been. And he has a track record of developing young men. Winning is important, but being involved in their lives is also what appeals to me."
