Wyoming Coach Fined $50,000 After Profanity Stunt

Troy Babbitt- US PRESSWIRE

Wyoming Cowboys coach Dave Christensen went on a little bit of a rampage to Air Force coach Troy Calhoun and now will be paying a hefty $50,000 fine for it. Following the game, Christensen said “F*** you Howdy Doody,” amongst many other vulgarities.

He went on his little tirade after Wyoming lost 28-27 on October 13th, which brought their season record to a pathetic 1-5 (Now 1-6). Christensen was upset about an earlier call where he believed an Air Force player was faking an injury.

Either way you look at it, he threw out the F-bomb way too many times and in a very short amount of time. Calhoun just walked off the field with a smirk on his face, not trying to fight him on it at all.

You can’t even count how many times he said F*** you in the 37 seconds the video lasted; I counted at least 15 but it seems like he might have said a few more under his breath that were too quiet to hear.

On top of the $50,000 fine, Christensen will not be attending practice this week and will allegedly not be at the team’s game vs. Boise State this Saturday. They claim his job is not in jeopardy but with the team’s current record, it is hard to say if they will follow through with that.

It was quite the epic rant and one that people will remember for years to come, not to mention that he lost respect from fans all around the nation. Even worse, it was Wyoming’s Military Appreciation Day.

Why does he say to Calhoun that he has no ethics? If you’re going to throw out those profanities while you’re still on camera, you have absolutely no standards on ethics whatsoever.
