The University of Wyoming is moving forward with its effort to replace football coach Dave Christensen who was fired Sunday.  U-W Athletics Director Tom Burman said at a news conference that the school is prepared  to make a competitive offer and he says the U-W Trustees and Acting President Dick McGinity are behind his efforts to drastically improve the football program.                 

“I feel good that we all know that this is an extremely important hire for the University and for me.  I need their support and I feel that I absolutely have it.”
