STILLWATER, Okla. — Oklahoma State's president is calling on the campus to pull together as a family as the university grieves the loss of the women's basketball team's head coach and his assistant.
President Burns Hargis told reporters on Friday that the school does not know the cause of the crash. Head coach Kurt Budke ('BUD-kee) and assistant coach Miranda Serna were killed when the single-engine plane they were riding in during a recruiting trip crashed Thursday night in central Arkansas.
Hargis says their deaths are the university's "worst nightmare" and he asks the community to come together during this tragic time.
