Mon­day Feb­ru­ary 7 was a dark day for Wyoming Cow­boys head bas­ket­ball coach Heath Schroy­er.  Lis­ten to the Tele­phone con­fer­ence where Ath­let­ic Direc­tor Tom Bur­man explains the Uni­ver­si­ties Posi­tion going for­ward. Lis­ten Here.There Are sev­er­al oth­er sto­ries cir­cu­lat­ing on the inter­net.

ESPN has a short blurb that was post­ed soon after Schroy­er was ter­mi­nat­ed.

Rivals.com is already talk­ing about a Face­book page in sup­port of hir­ing Bil­lie Gille­spie.

Sports Illustrated.com has post­ed an AP sto­ry (most like­ly writ­ten by Robert Gagliar­di of the Cheyenne Tri­bune-Eagle) ana­lyz­ing the tele­phone con­fer­ence with Ath­let­ic Direc­tor Tom Bur­man con­cern­ing Heath Schroy­ers fir­ing and the sub­se­quent search for a new head coach.

And of course The Casper Star-Tri­bune has their very own Eric Schmoldt report­ing his ver­sion of the sto­ry so far. Schmoldt also includes a poten­tial list of can­di­dates for the job, although if you lis­ten to what Bur­man has said (linked at the top of this sto­ry), the Uni­ver­si­ty of Wyoming will not dis­cuss, reveal or com­ment on any poten­tial can­di­dates for the job.

For your view­ing plea­sure I have includ­ed a copy of Heath Schroy­ers employ­ment con­tract with UW.
