Report: Former Husker, NDSU coach Bohl to be next Wyoming football coach

According to CBSSports.com, Wyoming will announce North Dakota State's Craig Bohl as its new head coach Sunday.

The website cited a source in making the report.

Bohl has been the head coach at North Dakota State since 2003. He spent the prior eight years at Nebraska, serving the last three of those years as Defensive Coordinator.

He began his coaching career as a linebackers coach at Wyoming.

Bohl played defensive back for the Huskers from 1977 to 1980, under former coach Tom Osborne.

The 55-year-old Bohl is 41-2 the past three seasons at North Dakota State, who is in the FCS quarterfinals. His team has won the last two FCS titles and is 13-0 this year.

The source also told CBSSports.com that Bohl "has a reputation for developing fierce teams and recruiting tough players, and that convinced the Wyoming brass that he would be an ideal fit for the Cowboys."

Bohl will replace Dave Christensen, who was fired last week after going 27-34 in five seasons at Wyoming.
