LARAMIE, Wyo. -- Montana coach Joe Glenn has accepted Wyoming's head coaching job, according to news reports.

Both the Casper Star-Tribune and KECI-TV in Missoula, Mont., say Glenn has agreed to become the Cowboys' 30th head coach. Both cited unnamed sources in their reports.

Officials at both Montana and the UW athletics office refused to comment on the reports. But the UW athletics office schedule a 2 p.m. MT news conference Thursday on the football coaching position.

But UW President Philip Dubois said the university hoped to have an announcement Thursday.

Wyoming has been searching for a replacement for Vic Koenning who was fired after three losing seasons. The Cowboys won just five games under Koenning.

Glenn has been successful at both Montana and at his previous head coaching job at Northern Colorado in Greeley, Colo.

Montana plays Division I-AA football and has compiled a 39-6 record in three seasons under Glenn. The Grizzlies won the national championship in 2001, finished second in 2000, and were 11-3 this season, losing 24-20 to McNeese State in the I-AA quarterfinals.

At Northern Colorado, Glenn recorded 10 winning seasons, including NCAA Division II national championships in 1996 and 1997.

A graduate of the University of South Dakota, Glenn got his first head coaching job at the age of 27 at Doane (Neb.) College in 1976.
