LARAMIE — Wyoming’s offensive coaching staff is undergoing a bit of a shakeup.

Offensive line coach Scott Fuchs and tight ends coach Mike Bath will not return next season. Both coaches confirmed their departures on Twitter, with Bath stating he’s leaving to join the staff at Western Michigan, where he’ll coach running backs.

“We have spent 5 wonderful yrs here & have been blessed during it,” Bath tweeted Friday afternoon. “This is a special place w/ great people & has left us w/ nothing but great memories. Thanks to Coach (Craig) Bohl, the staff, current & past, for the memories & friendships, the Laramie community for welcoming us & to the fans for your support.”

The moves were first reported by FootballScoop, which also correctly reported Colorado co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Klayton Adams would be hired to fill Fuchs’ spot on Bohl’s staff. Fuchs coached the offensive line for five seasons after following Bohl to Wyoming from North Dakota State, where he served in the same role on Bohl’s staff from 2009-13.

Bath, who also served as co-special teams coordinator, also spent the last five seasons on Wyoming’s staff. He coached the Cowboys’ running backs the first four years before taking on the new role this past season.

It’s a move closer to home for Bath, an Ohio native who played his college ball at Miami (Ohio) from 1997-2000.
