Late last week, the word in the profession was the Colorado State would like to have their new head coach today.
Friday night & Saturday word began to get out that the university had informed a number of candidates who had interviewed that they would not be getting the job. You typically only do that when you have a strong indication that your number one guy will accept.
There had been a lot of thinking in the profession that this would be the one that Scott Frost would go accept; but in our checking it sounds like Frost has turned down the opportunity. We discussed this as well as the candidacy of Mike Bobo and Vance Bedford on last night’s FootballScoop radio show. Have a quick listen.
With regards to Mike Bobo, who a number of coaches are beginning to feel will be the guy here, I offer that this is like hiring Mac 2.0; but without the local connections (successful SEC offensive coordinator who runs enough of a pro style, yet still adaptable offense).
As this one plays out we’ll keep you posted on The Scoop.
