University of Wyoming Men’s Basketball Coaching Change: There’s been a quick changing of the guard at the University of Wyoming.

Head Coach Jeff Linder has left the program to become an assistant coach at Texas Tech.

Returning to the team and taking his place will be Gillette native Sundance Wicks.

He was an assistant coach under Linder from 2020 to 2023, which includes the 2022 season, when the Pokes received an at-large bid to play in the NCAA Tournament.

This past season, Wicks was the head coach at the University of Green Bay, where he was named the Horizon League Coach of the Year and the Joe B. Hall National Coach of the Year, which is presented to the top rookie first-year head college coach at an NCAA Division 1 program.

The Phoenix went 18-14 this past season under Coach Wicks and when you consider that the team went 3-29 the year before his arrival, that’s quite a turnaround.

Coach Wicks graduated from Campbell County High School in 1999 and was the 1999 Milward Simpson Award winner.
