Wyoming sent a statement out to the media Sunday night regarding football coach Dave Christensen’s reaction and comments after the Cowboys’ 28-27 loss to Air Force Saturday in Laramie.
“I want to apologize to Wyoming fans, the Mountain West Conference and the game of college football for my actions and for the comments that I made after our game against Air Force,” said Christensen in the statement. “I let my emotions, my passion for our football program and the frustrations of the first half of the season get the best of me, and my actions reflected negatively on our program.
“I have always tried to teach the young men in our program the importance of sportsmanship in our game, and with that said, I believe it is important to let them know that when you do make a mistake you need to stand up and take responsibility for your actions. That is what I am doing with this apology.”
