After losing to Utah State 35-7 on Saturday and finishing short of a bowl bid after a 4-2 start, Wyoming head football coach Dave Christensen has been fired.
The Cowboys finished the season 5-7, making this the second straight losing season after making a bowl in two of his first three seasons.
"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 released by the school. "It is with that in mind that we move forward in search of a new leader for Cowboy Football."
The former Missouri offensive coordinator finished with a 27-34 record with the Cowboys, going 16-22 in the Mountain West Conference.
However, Christensen may not be out of work for too long as he's expected to be mentioned as a possible candidate for offensive coordinator jobs at Florida or Utah.
