Boyle leaves Wichita State for Bears

GREELEY, Colo. -- The University of Northern Colorado named Greeley native Tad Boyle as its new men's basketball coach Monday, capping a two-month search.

Boyle, 42, a 1981 graduate of Greeley Central High School, spent
the past six years as an assistant at Wichita State University.

Boyle replaces Craig Rasmuson, who resigned in late February
after compiling a 63-129 record in seven seasons to become a
full-time fundraiser for UNC athletics.

The Bears last season completed the third year of a four-year
move from Division II to Division I and will play in the Big Sky
Conference next season.
