Christensen was 27-34 in five seasons at Wyoming, including a 16-22 record in the Mountain West Conference.

The Cowboys started the season 4-2, but limped to a 5-7 record after a 35-7 loss to Utah State on Saturday.

Christensen came under fire last season after a postgame confrontation with Air Force’s Troy Calhoun went viral on YouTube.

During the profanity-laced tirade, Christensen called Calhoun “Howdy Doody,” and earned a one-game suspension and $50,000 fine from athletics director Tom Burman.

Prior to Wyoming, Christensen spent 12 seasons as offensive coordinator at Missouri.
