Craig Bohl To Wyoming

So how was your Saturday? Today was slightly busy after NDSU defeated Furman 38-7; the news broke at 8:30 pm from Bruce Feldman from

That was followed up by a flurry of Twitter activity from the Bison players, who seemed stunned and surprised at the news that Bohl was leaving for Wyoming; here’s the story from Mike Vorel from the Casper-Star Tribune.

Wyoming is coming off a 5-7 season and has struggled in the Mountain West in recent years; NDSU faced them in 2008, a game the Bison nearly won. The amount of money we’re hearing is more than 1.2 million, that was what Dave Christensen was getting paid, and Vorel’s article makes us believe it’s more than that. For the record, haven’t heard any confirmation on NDSU’s part; left messages with Gene Taylor and Bohl himself. We have confirmed there is a team meeting at 9am Sunday, that is unusual for the Bison, not something normally planned. NDSU’s Broadcasting Twitter feed says that Craig Bohl Coaches Show will go on at 10:30 am tomorrow. Per Bohl’s contract, the buyout to leave for a FBS job is 100,000 dollars; which I assume Wyoming would swallow up.

Biggest question now is who goes with Bohl? I firmly believe Brent Vigen will go with Bohl, not sure about Chris Klieman, but obviously this comes at a time when NDSU is prepping for an FCS Quarterfinal game against Coastal Carolina that will now be played Saturday at 11 am on ESPN, many at NDSU and even commissioner of the Missouri Valley, Patty Viverito nearly guaranteed a Friday night game on ESPN 2, instead that went to Towson-Eastern Illinois. The response from the players to this news seemed stunned and shock; from Brock Jensen:
