Craig Bohl Era Officially Starts At Wyoming

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Bohl and staff ready to head to Laramie after wrapping up another FCS Champhionship.

After pulling double duty for the last month, Craig Bohl can focus on just one job now.  He can put away all that Green and Yellow and get decked out in Brown and Gold.  After being announced as the next Wyoming head coach on December 8th, Bohl  continued to coach at North Dakota State as they went for their third straight FCS title.  Well that tenure lasted as long as possible as the Bison advanced to the FCS title game.

North Dakota State showed why they are so dominant with a 35-7 victory over the Towson Tigers.  Bohl and the majority of his staff will now begin their work at Wyoming.   Coach Kaligis has kept himself busy in Laramie as the lone coach.  Now he will have a lot more help in the office.


It is exactly one month till National Signing Day and there is plenty of work to be done.  Luckily Bohl can now hit the recruiting trail with a fantastic pitch "I just finished coaching my team to a third straight FCS title".  That is something that has only been done once before.  These next 30 days will be a very busy one for the new staff.

There is a recruiting dead period in place till January 15th.  So there won't be any visits this weekend.  However it appears that the weekend of the 17th and 18th will be a very busy one with several visits lined up.  Wyoming looks to be going after lots of players that either currently committed to FCS schools or hold offers from FCS  schools.  There is nothing wrong with that, Bohl built his championship teams on players with FCS offers.  He is great and finding talent and developing it.  With so little time, expectations need to be kept in check for this first class.

The Pokes did gain another commitment last week in OL Cole Turner from Cedar Rapids, IA.  The 6-4 285lb Turner chose Wyoming over Illinois State, Western Illlinois, South Dakota State and Northern Colorado.

Welcome aboard, Coach Bohl!  It's good to have you in Laramie full time.
