Dan Hays is the former head men’s basketball coach for Oklahoma Christian University (OC) in Edmond, Oklahoma. He spent 33 seasons as head coach at OC and recorded more wins than any coach in school history. While 2016 was his last season as head coach at OC, he returned to the program in April of 2019 and currently serves as special assistant to the head coach.  

With more than 720 career wins, Dan has been inducted into the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame–the highest athletic recognition in the state. He is also the recipient of the National Association of Basketball Coaches’ Guardians of The Game Award, which recognizes coaches who serve off the court as community leaders.
