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.
University of Wyoming Football Coach Craig Bohl signed 22 players from California to Florida during National Signing day today (Wednesday).
His first recruiting class features 20 freshmen. Among his recruits were four tight ends, four defensive backs, and five defensive linemen. Gillette’s Austin Fort was among the three Quarterback recruits.
Bohl says they had a short time to recruit, but they exceeded their goals.
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.
