Larry Shyatt announced he is stepping down as University of Wyoming Head Coach March 21, 2016. See his news conference regarding his decision. Shyatt had many accomplishments during his tenure at UW. The Cowboys had eight wins over top-25 opponents, including three against top-10 foes. Coach Shyatt was the fastest coach ever to reach 100 wins at UW.


Coach Shyatt described this as a very emotional time for he and his family in a statement he released earlier.

I am ending my career here with the reluctant blessing of Tom Burman and the administration,
and while they did their best to convince me to stay on, I believe that the timing of my decision is in the best interests of everyone involved.
