Mizzou Coordinator Christensen Takes Wyoming Job
Dec. 1, 2008
Missouri coach Gary Pinkel confirms offensive coordinator Dave Christensen will become the next head coach at Wyoming.
Christensen brought in the spread offense that helped vault Missouri into national prominence. Pinkel confirmed the hiring on the Big 12 conference call Monday
Pinkel says Christensen will remain with the 19th-ranked Tigers through the Big 12 championship game Saturday against No. 3 Oklahoma and whatever bowl game they play in. But he'll also devote some time to hiring a staff and recruiting for Wyoming.
Christensen's offense at Missouri ranks fourth in the nation with a 45-point average and is also fourth in passing and sixth in total offense.
