LARAMIE -- University of Wyoming offensive line coach Scott Fuchs won't return for the 2019 season, a source confirmed to WyoSports Thursday night.

The story was first reported by FootballScoop.com, which also reported UW is expected to hire former Colorado offensive line coach Klayton Adams as Fuchs' replacement.

Fuchs completed his fifth season as UW's offensive line coach this past season. He came with coach Craig Bohl from North Dakota State. Fuchs has 25 years as a college assistant coach, and has worked with the offensive line every year since 1997.

Fuchs was an offensive lineman at North Dakota State from 1990-93.

While at UW, Fuchs' offensive line helped running back Brian Hill become the Cowboys' all-time leading rusher from 2014-16 with 4,287 yards. Chase Roullier was a second team All-America pick at center by USA Today in 2016, and was selected in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL draft by the Washington Redskins. Roullier played every offensive snap for the Redskins this season.

In 2018, redshirt freshman Keegan Cryder was named to the Football Writers Association of America Freshman All-America team. Cryder played both guard positions and center for UW.

The Cowboys averaged 199.4 rushing yards per game in 2018. Senior running back Nico Evans led the Mountain West with 1,325 yards in 10 games, and was a first team All-MW selection.
