LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Craig Bohl is promising Wyoming football fans a great ride in the years ahead after being hired as head coach of the Cowboys on Sunday.

Bohl comes to Wyoming after 11 years at North Dakota State where he has won two Football Championship Subdivision titles and is in the process of seeking a third.

Bohl will remain NDSU's head coach through the end of its playoff run.

When Bohl takes over at Wyoming, he will be paid a base salary of $750,000 a year with the opportunity to earn up to $1.2 million with incentives.

Bohl says it's bittersweet leaving NDSU but it's time for him to move on to another challenge and opportunity.

He says most of his staff will follow him to Wyoming.

Bohl replaces Dave Christensen, who was fired on Dec. 1 after five seasons.
