Most coaches prefer to navigate the college football transfer market privately, but don’t Wyoming Coach Craig Bohl.
On Friday, less than 72 hours after finishing their season with a win Kent State At the famous Idaho Potato Bowl and then losing his starting quarterback in front of the transfer window, Bohl took the unusual step of announcing the sale of his team as a landing spot for a transfer midfielder.
In a message posted to Twitter, Bohl cited the one-time transfer rule and the ability for players to profit from their names, images, and likenesses. He said his staff “foresaw this movement and had a clear vision to navigate these uncharted waters.”
“Cowboy Football will address the need to sign a midfielder through a transfer portal or a junior college,” said Bohl. “We believe this is a great opportunity for a transfer midfielder to make an impact on our program. We’ve seen that before with the inclusion of Josh Allen on our program and we do. very excited for the next chapter of Cowboy Football.”
Allen started his career at Reedley College – a junior college – before moving to Wyoming ahead of the 2015 season.
Three years later, he’s the 7th overall pick of Buffalo Bills in the NFL draft.
On Wednesday, after winning the MVP in the famous Idaho Potato Bowl for a total of five touchdowns (one pass, four dash), Levi Williams announced that he will be joining the portal with three qualifying years remaining.
In nine appearances this season, the 6-foot-5 has thrown 990 yards, nine touchdowns and five interceptions. He also ran 482 yards and five points.
He is one of many notable full-backs to step into the gate this season.
