Wyoming hires UNC Bears coach to lead men's basketball team

By: Associated Press, with contribution from Dave Collins, Eagle Radio Chadron Sports Director

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming has hired Northern Colorado's Jeff Linder to replace Allen Edwards as head coach.

Linder has led the Bears to three straight seasons with over 20 wins. He was 80-50 over four seasons at Northern Colorado, including 22-9 this past season. Linder was named Big Sky Conference Coach of the Year during the 2018-19 season, when he led the Bears to a 15-5 conference record.

Former Scottsbluff High School Bearcat Trent Harris recently finished his senior season playing under Linder and was the team's third leading scorer at 11.1 ppg.

Linder also has coached at Boise State, the University of San Francisco, Weber State and Colorado. Linder says he will make recruiting for Wyoming a priority. Wyoming fired Edwards after back-to-back losing seasons, including a 9-24 finish this season.
