2/5/2004 - Wyoming Cowboys

LARAMIE, Wyo. -- University of Wyoming head football coach
Joe Glenn has been granted a one-year contract extension and a
$25,000 raise, Athletics Director Gary Barta announced Thursday.

The "salary supplement" through the Cowboy Joe Club will boost
Glenn's guaranteed salary to $438,780 for the rest of his contract,
which now extends through the 2008 season.

"In a very short time, Joe Glenn has captured the hearts and
imaginations of the people of Wyoming," Barta said. "I can't
imagine a better man to head this program, and these young men in
their athletic and academic pursuits."

Glenn led the Cowboys to a 4-8 record last season, their best
since finishing 7-4 in 1999.

Glenn, 53, became Wyoming's 30th head football coach after the
2002 season. His accomplishments include an NCAA Division I-AA
title and three Big Sky Conference championships while at Montana.

"I'm very, very appreciative of the support I have received
from our administration," Glenn said. "We are so excited about
the future of this program and stability is a huge key in that
future success."

Glenn has compiled a record of 162-67-1 over 29 seasons as a
college-level coach, including 19 as a head coach.
