Bohl confirms he is headed to Wyoming

FARGO – North Dakota State head football coach Craig Bohl confirmed on his weekly coach’s show that he is headed to the University of Wyoming.

“There is no perfect time, but I can tell you the No. 1 goal is the 2013 Bison,” Bohl said during the broadcast. “For us to take our football team as far as it can go.”

Sunday morning Bohl said he was headed to Wyoming later in the day and is set to return to Fargo on Monday.

“They’re not easy times,” Bohl said. “North Dakota State is very, very special place in my heart. There’s been 11 years that I invested here.”

CBS Sports first reported Saturday that Bohl was going to be named the next head coach at Wyoming. The Bison have won back-to-back FCS national championships and are in the midst of a run for a third consecutive national crown.

Bohl said Wyoming reached out to his representation during the week.

“I had very limited contact at all,” Bohl said.

Bohl met with the team prior to his coach’s show and at that time had no comment. NDSU athletic director Gene Taylor remained in the room to address the team. All of the Bison assistant coaches left soon after Bohl did.

“Head coaches can come and go, but this institution and the program here stays,” Bohl said. “NDSU is not about one person.”
