Wyoming's Heath Schroyer, terminated on February 7, may well be the first coaching casualty of the 2010-11 season. Wyoming AD Tom Burman fired Schroyer 23 games into Wyoming's season, just hours after Schroyer promoted San Diego head Coach Steve Fisher as conference coach of the year, during the Mountain West weekly teleconference. The Cowboys were 8-15 overall and 1-8 in Mountain West Conference play at the time of Schroyer's termination. Associate Head Coach Fred Langley was appointed interim Head Coach for the balance of the season.
With a single termination/turnover to this point in the season, things are far more sedate than last season when to this point five head coaches had been terminated or stepped aside.
