Wyoming fires men’s basketball coach
The Cowboys are 8-15 this season, including 1-8 in the Mountain West Conference.
Schroyer, who took over the UW program in 2007 after previous coach Steve McClain was also fired, compiled a 49-68 record over the three and a half seasons he was coach. His best season was 2008-09 when the team went 19-14 and earned a spot in the College Basketball Invitational tournament, where they lost at home to Northeastern in the first game.
A national search for a head coach would begin immediately, Burman said.
He thanked the players, the university and the university community for their support.
“I love our team, and I believe they have a bright future on and off the court,” he said.
The news release said Schroyer would have no further comment.
Burman said he regrets the firing but felt it is in the program’s best interest.
The team has improved its academic standing after having been penalized scholarships for poor academic performance under McClain.
