Ted Gilmore, a former Cowboy letterman in 1988 and '89, will be entering his second season as a full-time assistant at his alma mater. Prior to becoming a full-time assistant in 1997, he served as a graduate assistant for the 1994, '95 and '96 seasons at Wyoming. In his first two seasons as a graduate assistant, Gilmore worked with wide receivers, before coaching the tight ends in 1996. During his time working with the receivers, he coached Consensus All-American and NCAA Record Holder for receiving yards Marcus Harris (1993-96). In his first year as a full-time assistant in '97, Gilmore's top receiver was sophomore Wendell Montgomery, who had 905 yards receiving -- the 10th best single-season total in school history. While at Wyoming, he has coached on one WAC Pacific Division Championship team (1996), as well as playing for one WAC Title team (1988).
Gilmore, a 1990 graduate of Wyoming, transferred to UW from Butler County (Kan.) Community College. He led Wyoming in receiving yards in 1988 with 594 yards on 40 catches. The 1988 Cowboys went on to post an 11-2 record, win the WAC Championship with a perfect 8-0 conference record and appear in the 1988 Holiday Bowl. As a senior in 1989, Gilmore was selected Second Team All-WAC. Born in Wichita, Kan., on March 21, 1967, Gilmore is married to the former Jennifer Schey.
