Graduate transfer punter Nick Null will not return to Wyoming for another season.

LARAMIE — Wyoming specialist Nick Null is leaving the program.

A team source told the Star-Tribune on Monday that Null, a graduate transfer, is not returning to UW despite the NCAA granting all fall-sport athletes another year of eligibility in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Null later took to Twitter to announce his decision to transfer.

Null's UW career lasted one season after he transferred from Cornell, where he handled punting, field goal and kickoff duties. Null punted and kicked off for UW last season, but placekicking duties went to walk-on John Hoyland, who secured that job going forward with a breakout freshman season that earned him All-America honors.

Null's departure means the Cowboys are looking for a new punter for the third time in as many years. Null averaged 38.4 yards per punt last season.
