One day after the Wyoming Cowboys finished their season with a 35-7 loss to the Utah State Aggies, the program has decided to part ways with head coach Dave Christensen.
Athletic director Tom Burman spoke about the decision in a statement from the school:
We have come to a point where our football program has not achieved at the level of success that we expect, and we know from past experience that we can be successful. It is with that in mind that we move forward in search of a new leader for Cowboy Football.
Wyoming Football has been successful at many periods in our history. When you combine that great tradition with the investment we’ve made in developing outstanding football facilities that are among the best not only in our conference but in the West, we believe that we can achieve great success again (ESPN).
Over his five years as the coach of the Cowboys, Christensen amassed a 27-34 record.
The Cowboys went 5-7 this year.
