UW Football Scrimmage

Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl calls out to a referee during an April scrimmage at Cheney Alumni Field in Casper.

The Mountain West held a two-day meeting last week between head football coaches and referees in the conference, it announced Monday -- an event the Mountain West is calling the first of its kind.

The event in Colorado Springs, Colorado, included head coaches from the conference; seven referees; Greg Burks, the Mountain West coordinator of football officials; Rogers Redding, the NCAA national coordinator of football officials; and conference staff.

“I think we are doing something that is really unique,” Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl said in a press release. “There is no doubt in my mind, a lot of my colleagues around the country when they hear this, they’re going to say ‘that’s a heck of an idea.’”

Said Burks: “I get a lot of opportunities to talk to coaches during the course of the year, while our referees don’t. This summit provided a platform for this discussion. Having this meeting of the minds and to share some of their concerns, I believe is valuable. If you think about football coaches, their most important commodity is time. To get the level of commitment we’ve had is incredible.”
