UW athletics director explains cuts to athletics department - Thaddeus Mast, Laramie Boomerang

All University of Wyoming departments and units are facing budget reductions, including the athletics department. While some people state the importance of keeping the sports programs funded, others argue it should be cut further. The Financial Crisis Advisory Committee, a group created to analyze and create a possible plan for Fiscal Year 2018 budget reductions, heard Athletics Director Tom Burman speak about his monetary situation. The committee is tasked with finding $15 million in cuts for the FY 2018 budget and is currently considering a $1.2 million reduction to the athletics’ budget. The committee report is not final – it would be passed on to UW President Laurie Nichols to make final budget decisions.
