    Default Bye Coach Blazek

    Wyoming football has announced that AJ Blazek has been hired as the new offensive line coach, replacing Bart Miller. Blazek comes from North Dakota State.
    #gowyo #OneWyoming


    Another off to FBS land. AJ Loved it at NDSU, Loved the Culture coming from Rutgers. This just goes to show you, NDSU needs to step it up.

    Bohl & Crew
    Klieman & Crew

    it'll keep happening. Bohl and Klieman can just pluck coaches and recruits ANYTIME they want. Sad

    key line "I'm so excited to join Coach Bohl and his staff at Wyoming," said Blazek. "Having been here at NDSU and knowing what Coach built and accomplished here before he moved to Wyoming, I'm extremely excited to be part of that culture

    Sad to see him go... always enjoyed his interviews -- seems like a great guy.

    With that said, it will be interesting to see who they replace him with... I suspect AJ probably suggested someone pretty good -- if you are an O Line Coach and you want to coach the power run game -- NDSU is the place in college football, no matter the level, that you want to be!

    I said from the beginning it was clear he was not going to be here long term. You don't go from power 5 to ndsu unless it's transitional

    But he's a very good coach and I wish him well

    But simply moving up would not have kept him. We need a larger budget for coaching salaries

    Hello New OL Coach Rob Hunt ???
    (5 years OC/OL coach at MSUM, Played in NFL, Knows NDSU system, will be cheap... which is what NDSU likes in 2021 eh matt larson?)

    See if Conor Riley wants to come back from K State before they all get fired next year when they go 3-8 & gene taylor retires? (just kidding, dude is making $400k/year)



    BTW I loved Blazek. Dude was awesome!!! but double your salary? duh. $100k to $200k ?

    Open your wallet wider. There isn't an NCAA limit on coaches salaries is there? The only limiting factor is the money coming in.

    Looks like the previous OLine Coach, Bart Miller, took a job with the new Illinois staff (former Wisconsin later Arkansas coach Bret Bielema). According to this, Miller’s base salary this season at Wyoming was $200,000.

    Rob Hunt would be a good hire. He's been up here for a long time so he's not going to leave for the next girl who gives him attention

    I wouldn't say he would be cheap, kind of insulting. But NDSU pays way better than D2 and he could be a long term guy.

    Rumor has it that Bo Pelini is headed to NDSU to take AJ's spot.
