Wyoming Assistant Coach Harvey Patton Not Retained on Football Staff

Feb. 12, 2008


University of Wyoming head football coach Joe Glenn announced on Tuesday that assistant coach Harvey Patton will not be retained as a member of the Wyoming coaching staff.

"Harvey's (Patton) past contributions to our program are appreciated, and we wish him the best in his future," Glenn said.

Patton has coached the tight ends at Wyoming the past four seasons. His first year at UW, in 2003, he coached the Cowboy running backs. He previously had coached the running backs at Montana from 2000-02, served one year as the running backs' coach at the University of Nevada (Reno) in 1999 and prior to that was running backs' coach at his alma mater, Northern Colorado, from 1994-98.

A search will begin immediately to fill Patton's position. No specific timetable for filling the position has been established.
