Maybe the problem isn't just the coaches, but the AD who selects, hires, extends said coaches. Moon took over in 1996, Tiller's last year. He hired Dimel (.657 winning percentage), Koenning (.147 winning percentage) and Glenn (.423 winning percentage). Moon leaves, and in come Tommy boy. He fires Glenn, and hires Christensen (.435 winning percentage) and Bohl (.474 winning percentage). Other than Dimel, not exactly a sterling job selecting coaches.
I've been following Wyoming since the 1950's, so I've seen the coming and going of these guys -
Bob Devaney - Two national championships
Lloyd Eaton - Great coach, but not a great human being
Fritz Shurmer - He won a super bowl with the Packers as their defensive coordinator
Fred Akers - Undefeated in 1977 and 1983 but lost the championship game in both those years
Bill Lewis (not a good coach) - Did win a national championship at Georgia in 1980 as defensive coordinator
Pat Dye - In the college football hall of fame as a coach - 153–62–5 in his college coaching career
Al Kincaid - He would have fit right in with the hires of today
Dennis Erickson - Won two national championships at Miami
Paul Roach - Wyoming legend
Joe TIller - Another Wyoming legend
My point is, prior to Moon, Wyoming did a good job of finding talent. While they couldn't keep them, they still hired coaches (most of them) that went on to be great. Since Moon and Burman, Wyoming has sucked. Perhaps it's the current climate in college football, or just bad AD's, but things used to be a lot different. Pointing to Bohl's teams going to bowl games is a bit of reach...considering there are now 40+ bowl games and it's almost like a participation trophy. Bohl's teams would never have gone to any bowl game prior to 2000 (look at Tiller's team). Maybe, just maybe, it's time for a new AD, and some fresh perspective on what has become a mediocre Sh#t show in Laramie.
What is the difference between politicians and stoners? Politicians don't inhale...they just suck.
