  • Dave Christensen, Wyoming head football coach, has been suspended from Saturday's game against Boise State after he went off on Air Force coach Troy Calhoun Oct. 13.

When Boise State tries to improve on its 7-1 record against Wyoming this coming Saturday, an important person will be missing from the game: Wyoming's head football coach.

Tom Burman, Wyoming's athletic director, announced Monday that coach Dave Christensen had been suspended. Christensen is being punished for his Oct. 13 post-game outburst, targeting Air Force football coach Troy Calhoun, whose team had just beaten Wyoming 28-27.

A video of Christensen's comments, which including his calling Calhoun "Mr. Fucking Howdy Doody" and "Fly Boy," went viral last week.

In addition to the one-game suspension, Christensen was also fined $50,000.

Christensen's tirade occurred as Wyoming celebrated Military Appreciation Day.
