"Vance and I were in agreement that it might be a good time for a change," Gundy said. "There are some things he wants to pursue and some things we want to do as well. We certainly wish him the best and appreciate the things he has done for Cowboy football over the last two years."
Bedford served as defensive coordinator for the past two seasons and coached Oklahoma State's defensive backs in 1993 and 1994.
"I'm very appreciative of the opportunity to have been at Oklahoma State," Bedford said. "I think Coach Gundy is going to do great things here. I look forward to seeing that happen, and I'm looking forward to what's ahead for me as well."
Before returning to Stillwater, Bedford served as the secondary coach at Michigan and had other coaching stops at Colorado State, Navarro Junior College and Forestbrook High School in Houston.
He is a 1984 graduate of Texas and played for the Longhorns. He also spent time in the NFL with the St. Louis Cardinals and played for the Oklahoma Outlaws.
