The Wyoming Cowboys are have matched their most wins since 2011 and are on track to have their most regular seasons wins 1996 when that team won 10 games. With that success head coach Craig Bohl is in talks for a contract extension, according to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports.

In his third year, Bohl has the Wyoming program on track to win the Mountain Division with an 8-3 record and can win the division and get to nine wins if they beat New Mexico on the road. If there is extreme chaos a Cotton Bowl berth might be in the mix, but that is a long shot.

If the Cowboys top the Lobos then Wyoming would be in the their first conference title game since that same 1996 year in which they fell to BYU in the WAC title game.

The Cowboys also have beaten both Boise State and San Diego State — both who were ranked at the time — and Bohl has already exceeded his win total over the past two years which was six victories.

Currently, Bohl makes $909,000 per year and can max out his bonuses at $330,000 and has two more years left on his current deal, which takes him through his fifth year. There is no word on what an extension would entail, either in more money or years, but with the season he is having some sort of reward should be in order.
