Florida assistant Larry Shyatt has reached a deal to become Wyoming's next men's basketball coach, a source told CBSSports.com on Thursday.
CBSSports.com reported Wednesday that Shyatt had interviewed with Wyoming officials and was expected to be named the head coach within 48 hours. This will be Shyatt's second stint as head coach of the Cowboys. He led the school to a 19-9 record in the 1997-98 season, then took the Clemson job when Rick Barnes left the ACC for Texas. Shyatt was the head coach at Clemson from 1998 to 2003. He had been on Billy Donovan's staff since 2004 and was instrumental in Florida's back-to-back national championships in 2006 and 2007.
Wyoming fired Heath Schroyer last month.
