Laramie, Wy – The University of Wyoming has hired a former member of the athletic department and a U-W grad to be its next Athletic Director. Laramie Native Tom Burman succeeds Gary Barta who left to take the Athletic Director Job in Iowa. Burman says his goal is to be the top athletic department in the Mountain West Conference.
Burman says they need to complete building new facilities for the department and to make sure coaches can overcome obstacles. Burman, who received a standing ovation, will take over his new duties on Thursday.
