LARAMIE, Wyo. -
Athlon Sports released on Monday its 2015 rankings of all Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) head coaches in the country. Athlon also named its Top 15 "Coaches on the Rise." Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl was ranked by Athlon among those Top 15 "Coaches on the Rise." He was also ranked No. 2 among Mountain West head football coaches, and was ranked No. 49 out of the 128 NCAA FBS coaches.
The articles were written by Steven Lassan of Athlon Sports. The ranking of all 128 FBS coaches was a compilation of voting by Athlon Sports' staff members.
Among the comments in Athlon's Top 15 story regarding Bohl was this statement, "There's a strong track record of success, and Wyoming hit a home run when it lured Bohl away from North Dakota State."
In Athlon's ranking of all 128 coaches the publication said this of Bohl, "Bohl's first season at Wyoming resulted in a 4-8 mark, but that record wasn't unexpected. Most anticipated 2014 and `15 would be rebuilding years for the Cowboys, but Bohl's team should show progress throughout the course of the upcoming season. In 11 years at North Dakota State, Bohl went 104-32 and claimed three consecutive FCS national championships from 2011-13. Give Bohl a couple of years and Wyoming will be a consistent winner in the Mountain West."
Only Utah State head coach Matt Wells was ranked ahead of Bohl in the rankings. Wells was ranked by Athlon No. 44 in the nation.
