Corvallis, Ore. -- Wayne Tinkle will remain the head coach of Oregon State men's basketball through the 2022-2023 season, OSU athletic director Scott Barnes announced Tuesday.
Tinkle helped lead the Beavers to their first winning record in conference play and best finish in league play since the 1989-1990 season. Oregon State finished fourth in the conference with a 10-8 record, with sweeps over USC and rival Oregon, as well as their first conference road sweep of Colorado and Utah since 2008-2009.
The Beavers are returning all Pac-12 team selections Tres Tinkle, Kylor Kelley and Ethan Thompson. OSU also is bringing in a recruiting class that brings in JUCO transfers and Jarod Lucas, one of California's high school all time leading scorers.
During his first five years in Corvallis, Wayne Tinkle has led the Beavers to a .500 record or better in four of them. OSU opens their season this year against Cal-State Northridge.
