Coach Resumes Pilling Up

With the hiring of WR coach Kevin Sumlin, the Buffs need to fill only the vacent running back coach position. Head Coach Gary Barnett has several interested parties including some former Buffs.

The resumes are beginning to pile up on Gary Barnett's desk with coaches interested in becoming the CU's new running back coach.

It's a nice problem to have.

There are several reports circulating around the University of Colorado on who will be named the new running back coach. One of the names that keeps coming up is former CU QB Darian Hagan. While many Buff fans beleive he would be a great fit to replace Eric Bieniemy, the problem with Hagan is a financial one. Many believe that hiring Hagan would cost CU big time and that they may not have the money to afford him.

While hiring a former Buff is intriguing to some, others are speculating that Barnett has had it with those that have CU ties and he may hire someone completly separated for the program.
