Wyoming coach Craig Bohl views his return to Nebraska this week as a business trip. The Lincoln native is in his third season with the Cowboys after leading North Dakota State to three straight FCS national championships. Bohl played for the Huskers and was Nebraska’s defensive coordinator until he was fired by head coach Frank Solich following the 2002 season.
“My parents still live there and I have got a daughter who lived there but as coaches you travel around the profession and a lot of times end up coaching at a different school than you played at”, said Bohl. “I think any college coach would tell you it is about the players and you focus on the game at hand.”
After posting records of 4-8 and 2-10 in his first two years in Laramie the Cowboys look to be vastly improved this season. They opened with a 40-34 triple overtime win against Northern Illinois and Saturday’s game will be their first road test.
“Memorial Stadium is a great place to play and I believe it is one of the top college venues in the country. That will be a test itself.”
