Wyoming Fires Defensive Coordinator

wyoming_2013A couple of days after his Wyoming defense gave up 50-plus points for the second time in two games, Chris Tormey is now on the outside of the football program looking in.

In a press release, head coach Dave Christensen announced that, effective immediately, the defensive coordinator has been relieved of his duties. The school stated Tormey will be paid through the remainder of his contract, which is set to expire in December.

Defensive line coach Jamar Cain will assume Tormey’s coordinating duties.

“I felt that we needed to make a change at this time to give our football team and the young men on it the best opportunity to win our remaining four regular-season games,” said Christensen in a statement. “The last two weeks, our defense has not performed up to the expectations of our coaching staff, our players, nor our fans.”
