Wyoming has fired coach Joe Glenn after his fourth losing season in six years at the school.
Athletic director Tom Burman said Sunday that the program has not made the progress it hoped for under Glenn, including failure to compete for a Mountain West Conference championship.
Sunday's announcement followed the Cowboys 31-20 loss to rival Colorado State in Laramie on Saturday. Wyoming finished the season 4-8 overall and 1-7 in the Mountain West, placing them eighth in the conference.
The 59-year-old Glenn went 30-41 overall and 15-31 in conference play with Wyoming.
The university says it will pay Glenn $316,000 for the remaining two years of his contract, which ran through 2010.
