Christensen fired as Wyoming coach after 5 seasons
(AP) -- Dave Christensen was fired as Wyoming's football coach Sunday after the Cowboys lost five of their last six games this season.
He coached Wyoming for five years, taking the Cowboys to two bowl games. Wyoming finished 5-7 after starting 4-2, ending the season with a 35-7 loss to Utah State on Saturday.
"We have come to a point where our football program has not achieved at the level of success that we expect, and we know from past experience that we can be successful," athletic director Tom Burman said in a statement. "It is with that in mind that we move forward in search of a new leader for Cowboy football."
