Wyoming reportedly to name Bohl football coach

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 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.
