University of Wyoming football coach Craig Bohl has been a winner at a number of places. While an assistant Coach at Nebraska the Cornhuskers won two national championships and his last three teams at North Dakota State won the last three Football Championship Subdivision titles.
He is taking over a Wyoming team that has struggled with consistency in recent years, especially on a defense. Bohl is friendly, but businesslike. Unlike most football coaches he wears a jacket and a tie to work. He told Bob Beck that the transition to Wyoming has been a good one.
Wyoming’s new football Coach says it is bittersweet leaving North Dakota State after eleven years, but Craig Bohl is excited about bringing winning football back to the Cowboy state. Bohl’s teams have won consecutive championships in the division below Wyoming, but he is convinced he will be successful at the Division one level. Bohl says his teams are good on offense, but are known for their defense.
Senior free safety, Marqueston Huff, wants to be a team leader for the Wyoming football team this year. As a defensive back, he has made 122 tackles, deflected ten passes and taken four interceptions. Not to mention scoring two touchdowns for the Cowboys.
Huff has also weathered all of the Cowboys’ ups and downs since 2010. The team has won each Border War rivalry game against Colorado State since he arrived in Laramie, but he’s also suffered through a bowl game loss and two losing seasons.
