Even though Eddie Sutton is out on medical leave, whatever wins and losses that Sean Sutton accrues for the remainder of this season will count on his father's record.
The NCAA rule states that each individual school may decide beforehand how the game's results will count. Oklahoma State already has opted to have the wins count for Eddie Sutton.
From the NCAA Division I Manual:
18.104.22.168 -- Determination of Head Coach at an Institution. In order for a coach to be credited with wins, losses or ties, that individual must be designated as the institution's head coach for the entire sports season. Individuals serving on an advisory or preseason basis may not be credited with the wins, losses or ties. If the head coach is not present at a contest due to illness or other unexpected circumstances, or otherwise is unable to complete the sports season, it is up to the institution to determine whether the win, loss or tie for that contest(s) shall be credited to the head coach or to an interim or assistant coach, as determined by the institution prior to the contest(s).
