I know he struggled (putting it mildly) at Arizona, but what is Kevin Sumlin up to these days?

There's a glut of good former HC's that could be had to replace Chev, right? I know that's idealistic to think, but . . . please?

The next OC is already on staff.
You are probably right, but CU could use some infusion of experienced CFB coordinators. Unlike some, I am not nearly as down on Chris Wilson. I think he is a pretty sound choice at DC.

If I could shake up the staff, I would consider Dan Enos as OC. He's currently at Maryland, been around a long time and has stops at Michigan, Miami, Arky et. al. If you wanted to go younger, I would suggest Barry Lunney at UTSA.

I would also can the TE coach and hire James Shibest from the soon to be fired VT staff. The guy is money on ST/TE.

Just a thought. These are guys CU would have a legit chance of getting IMO.

In the end, Langsdorf will get the OC job and some NFL retread, retired on the job, crony of HCKD will get a raise to come be the CU WR coach.

It takes a certain personality to hire people who are smarter or more talented than you to be your employee. Karl Dorrell has not demonstrated that he has this kind of personality.

I think Seth Littrell, Jake Spavital and Chip Long are also guys on the fan board approved list. Not so sure Bobo would be.
Seems like Seth Littrell might have a shot at surviving this season, they have won a few straight games, and a win next week over UTSA would put them in a bowl.

@Duff Man, you probably paid more attention to Chip Lindsey with him having spent time at Auburn. What do you think about him as a possible OC option? He seemed to emphasize a lot of the run/play action KD prioritizes, but also had some explosiveness to his offenses.

I think it is hard to evaluate OCs under Malzahn because Malzahn is such a micromanager on offense. Probably would be okay.

Personally, I think Paul Petrino is a guy worth pursuing.
