Former Oklahoma State football coach Pat Jones will be inducted into the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame Monday night in Oklahoma City.

And coach Mike Gundy is making it a point to be in attendance for the ceremony.

"It's during our camp, but I'm going to be there to show support for him," Gundy said. "... It's important to him. He put in some much time here and won a bunch of ball games. So it was certain we needed to be there."

The all-time winningest coach in OSU history, Jones led the Cowboy program from 1984-1994. During his tenure, OSU posted three bowl wins, emerging victorious at the 1984 Gator Bowl, the 1987 Sun Bowl and the 1988 Holiday Bowl. A two-time Big Eight Coach of the Year, Jones also spent 10 years in the NFL.

"I'm really excited for how he's starting to come around and be more involved with Oklahoma State," Gundy said.

OSU All-American basketball player Jesse "Cab" Renick is also part of the 2012 induction class.
