COLUMBUS, Ohio — Wyoming boys’ basketball coach Tim Edmonds announced he will step down after five seasons in order to spend more time with his family.

Edmonds was 101-20 in the five years as the Cowboys’ head coach. He was also an assistant for two seasons prior to that.

Edmonds has coached high school basketball for 25 years overall and said he wanted to be able to watch his son Jake, a 2017 Wyoming graduate, play football at Marian University. Wyoming senior Joey Edmonds, a football and basketball standout, will graduate this spring and play basketball at Findlay University.

“I enjoyed having the opportunity to coach both of my boys,” Edmonds said. “That was really special. I will always treasure that time.”

Edmonds arrived at Wyoming seven years ago as an assistant to head coach Matt Rooks. The Cowboys rebounded from a 2-19 record a season before to be 22-4 two years later after the coaches arrived. Rooks later accepted the Lakota West head coaching position. He re-joined Wyoming's staff this winter.

The Cowboys have been 123-24 the past six seasons including five Cincinnati Hills League titles. Wyoming (22-2) was a Division II sectional finalist this past season.

Wyoming has posted the head boys' basketball coaching position.

"We will go through the complete process to select the next coach," Wilking said.
