Edwards out at Wyoming after dismal back-to-back seasons

LARAMIE, Wyo. – Wyoming has fired head basketball coach Allen Edwards after back-to-back losing seasons.

University officials announced Monday a search for a replacement will begin immediately. Wyoming made a surprise run in the recent Mountain West Conference tournament, beating Colorado State and Nevada before losing to Utah State 89-82 in the semifinals.

It wasn’t enough to salvage the Edwards era at Wyoming. Edwards’ tenure as head coach got off to a promising start.

The Cowboys finished 24-15 and won the College Basketball Invitational championship in 2017.

Wyoming finished 20-13 in 2018 but limped to an 8-24 finish the following season and a 9-24 record this year.
