Oklahoma State Coach Kurt Budke, assistant Miranda Serna killed in plane crash

It’s been a few hours since I heard the news that Oklahoma State Coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna were killed in a plane crash, and I am still reeling.

Budke was in his seventh season with the Cowgirls.

They were on a recruiting trip in Arkansas when the plane went down yesterday afternoon.

Budke and Serna had coached together for more than a decade.

Reactions from other NCAA coaches have been heartfelt.

ESPN’s Doris Burke reacts.

  1. This is such a tragedy and so heartbreaking. I feel for their families, their team and the entire OSU family. I would say they have endured their fair share of tragedy.
