Official 2020 University of Colorado Football Head Coach Search Thread (Chev Interim)

Well. Mel Tucker has deceived everyone associated with CU by publicly stating he was committed to this program and parading around the local media, only to agree to a deal to become Michigan States next Head Coach. Our beloved Buffs are back to searching for a new Head Coach at a time of the year where the candidate pool is extremely slim.

Who are the options? Chev as an interim for the season? Bienemy? Go find another coordinator? Dave Logan??

off the top of my head:

Bieniemy
Andy Avalos DC Oregon (probably too young, but that defense was sick)
Alex Grinch DC Oklahoma (took a gut shot at Ohio St Oklahoma was solid with eh playoffs)
Morgan Scalley DC Utah was a broyles finalist, but he's just been at Utah forever

ughhhhhhhh this is so bad, everyone decent has a job. Tucker really ****ed us

I’m in total shock. Unbelievable. Bieniemy is my #1 choice I guess but man, does it even matter anymore? I’ll always root for our Buffs but this is the most defeated I’ve ever felt in my 33 years of fandom.

Scooter has to be the first guy RG calls. If he says no, I'd call Blake Anderson from Arkansas State. I'll pass on another ambitious coordinator looking to use us a stepping stone to a better gig. We're a power 5 school and one of the 25-30 winningest programs in the sport. A guy who wants to be here is the biggest thing.

Bienemy keeps the recruiting class going, theoretically will stay awhile and has huge credit with recruits as Mahomes OC. The only choice as far as I’m concerned.
The fact he hasn't landed a HC job and lots of people question how much he actually calls play is a little telling tho ...

Tucker was gone if we had a bowl season next year anyway. The big issue is how much does Tucker gut this class? That's where the real damage will be done ...
How is he gutting a class that is signed? University has to let them out of their LOI

Doug Pedersen didn't call plays for the Chiefs. He's a pretty successful coach with Philly. EB would be my first call and if he doesn't come-Blake Anderson would be who I'd want. I'll pass on another hotshot coordinator. Anderson has been at Arkansas State a while, won fairly consistently there, and seems like a very high character guy.

Not Bieniemy... Not after the Embree era went so poorly. Nothing worked on any level. I'd prefer Chiaverini, but I don't think he's ready for the head job yet either...

I'm not sure how you even do a full search this time of year? Such an unenviable position to be in.

Mel Tucker " wanted to be here" as well.

well RG's list last time was

MT
Jimmy Lake
Ryan Day

so I wouldn't throw coordinators out too early. It was always likely MT would move on, it's likely anyone we hire will probably move on and up if things go well. Just nobody saw it after 1 5 win season..
Tony Elliott from Clemson's the only Power 5 coordinator I'd even consider honestly

They all want to be here (until bigger checks start getting offered)

why would some guy from Arkansas suddenly be different? Hell, I bet EB would ditch if the opportunity was right too. It is what it is. Just hire the best ****ing guy we can get and worry about the rest down the road.

If it's true that MSU, a mid tier B10 team, can straight up double MT's salary as well as double the assistant coach pool, it's a reality we'll have to live with.

I knew I should’ve questioned Tucker’s sincerity when I watched the video of him telling Jayle Stacks he was the “main event” on the same day Ashaad Clayton signed.
