Craig Bohl confirms he’s leaving ND State for Wyoming

Bill Snyder, Craig Bohl AP

A little over three months after stunning Kansas State in the season opener, Craig Bohl is taking his coaching game to the next level… literally.

Following up on reports that began surfacing Saturday, Bohl confirmed during his weekly coach’s television show Sunday that he will be leaving North Dakota State to take over at Wyoming.  The Cowboys subsequently confirmed that Bohl will be introduced at a press conference that is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET tonight.

On his show this morning, Bohl said there’s never a perfect time for a coaching change and that he’s taken the Bison program as far as he can.

Bohl’s successor will certainly have large shoes to fill.  In his 11 seasons at the school, the Bison have gone 101-32 and won the last two FCS championships.

The Bison are in the FCS playoffs again this season and advanced to the quarterfinals Saturday.  Bohl indicated that he will continue to coach the team through its latest playoff run.

Bohl will replace Dave Christensen, who was fired last week after five years with the Cowboys.

    “I bet he could have done better than Wyoming.”

    I think I agree. But sometimes it’s about fit, rather than “what you could have done”. This just seems like a good fit.
