NDSU football coach Craig Bohl leaving Bison for Wyoming job


North Dakota State University's head football coach confirmed on his televised weekly coach’s show that he is moving to the head position at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. Craig Bohl met with the NDSU team prior to his Sunday coach’sshow.

The Fargo Forum reported that Bohl said that the leadership at Wyoming reached out to his representation during the week. KFGO reported that Wyoming will hold a press conference to introduce Bohl Sunday evening, and that the coach will get a significant pay hike at Wyoming, going from about $350,000 a year at NDSU to the neighborhood of $1.5 million with the Cowboys.

WDAY noted that Bohl is in the midst of his 11th season as coach. Under his leadership, the Bison have won back-to-back FCS national championships and are in the midst of a run for a third consecutive national crown.The station said that some have called Bohl's job change a lateral move, but one that could make sense with the speculation that Wyoming is leaving the Mountain West conference for the Big Twelve.

“North Dakota State is a very, very special place in my heart," Bohl said. "There’s been 11 years that I invested here.”
