Paul Chryst’s ouster from Wisconsin on Sunday came as a surprise. But Carl Dorrell? No way.
Colorado is 0-5, 4-13 the past two seasons. The list is abysmal by Power 5 standards. This is going to be a really tough job. He doesn’t have a great recruiting base and his positioning is pretty shaky when it comes to conference stability. Colorado also hasn’t had consecutive winning seasons in nearly 20 years, dating back to 2004-05. There has only been one season in the Top 25 in the past 20 years, a 17th-place finish in 2016 under Mike MacIntyre.
How can Colorado solve this problem? Who wants to try? The latter is an equally important question.
We think Colorado will try to focus the search on candidates with head coaching experience, but there are a few men without that experience that we think the Buffaloes could consider.
Candidates with head coaching experience
Bronco Mendenhall: Former BYU and Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall is available. He’s a defensive-minded coach who had a solid run at Virginia after going 99-43 at BYU. He knows this area well and would feel like a fairly safe rental. Would he have inflamed the fanbase? Probably not, but could he develop the Buffaloes into a bowling team? Most likely.
Kalani Sitake: The guy who followed Mendenhall to BYU, Sitake would also make sense. His teams are always very physical and play hard.
