After his stay at OCU, Hansen coached at Oklahoma State University from 1980-1986. In 1981, his second season, he was named the Big Eight Conference Coach of the Year. Hansen became the head coach at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma in Chickasha, Oklahoma in 1987. He is remembered as much for his teaching as for his coaching and for his character, integrity and positive influence on all who knew him.
