Fargo, ND (SportsNetwork.com) - Two-time FCS championship-winning coach Craig
Bohl of North Dakota State will reportedly be named Wyoming's new head football
coach on Sunday.
CBS Sports reported the 55-year-old Bohl will replace Dave Christensen, who was
27-34 in five seasons at Wyoming.
Bohl is 101-32 in 11 seasons at North Dakota State, including 13-0 this season.
The Bison posted a 38-7 second-round playoff win over Furman on Saturday as
they continued toward their goal of three straight national titles.
His hiring at Wyoming could mean Bohl will no longer be on the Bison sideline
when they host Coastal Carolina in the national quarterfinals next Saturday.
Senior quarterback Brock Jensen wrote on Twitter: "Really happy for Coach, love
that man with all my heart... Sad it had to get leaked like this, doubt he
wanted it to happen like it is."
Bohl reportedly made around $350,000, including bonuses, last year, and his
hiring at Wyoming could raise him to upwards of four times that level.
Bohl was the 2012 Eddie Robinson Award winner as the FCS coach of the year.
This season, he was named the Missouri Valley Football Conference coach of the
year for the third straight year.
