He's getting no recognition at CU, if he goes to a big name program it almost guarantees he gets drafted higher... This is another reason why the college football stage is grossly unbalanced.

Ordinarily you might trust the coach in this situation and think that the player had not produced up to expectations.

But then you see the Cody situation and realize that this coach has no credibility.

I just don't know how the situation there can get much worse. It would appear that they honestly don't have enough money to can this guy, so it's hard to know how it will get any better in the near term.

It's the first week in November, how many coaches get **** canned during the season?

If they keep him and claim money issues, that's an excuse but not reality. The money from donors to buy him out was there, this probably puts it over the top.

They have a brief window to do something great on the football field. If its clear it will be tainted by some skank in over his head then get out and take your year off to restart.

11-03-2009, 06:31 PM
Sophomore tailback Darrell Scott, the most highly-rated recruit signed in Colorado coach Dan Hawkins' four years, has left the program.

"I'd been thinking about it for a couple of months," Scott told The Denver Post today in a telephone interview.

Scott said he hoped to get a release from CU to UCLA, so he could join his uncle, former Buffs wideout Josh Smith, with the Bruins. Smith, a wide receiver, transferred to UCLA during the summer and is sitting out this season under NCAA transfer rules.

He didn't live up to his hype at CU but he was the crown jewel, the feather in the cap for Talkins. Now he has left so it represents what has happened to this program.

they should go after Kyle Shanahan. i am being serious, he has a great football mind, and is going to be a HC candidate in the NFL within 5 years. it would be a good move on his part to get his learning curve out of the way in the college ranks for a few years and then come back to the NFL

I think that's aiming too high, at this point. The KS/Kubiak has been outstanding and Kyle could be an NFL head coach candidate sooner than you think, especially if the Texans get into the playoffs this year (which I think they will).

My hope was the Texans would fold this year and Kubiak would take the CU job on the rebound, ten years belated. Doesn't look like that is going to happen.

Of course, that would take money. And I just don't see CU coming up with it. They need somebody like a Jon Gruden. Instantly recognizable.

I'd love Gruden...I think he would have that Pete Carroll appeal to him. Don't know if we can afford him or not.....that's why I like Shanahan. We can afford to pay him say 500k till his contract with the Broncos runs out...then we have to pony up to keep him!

My opinion is that getting a big time coach at CU will never happen. CU wouldn't pay a coach the amount of money to inherit a program with a lack of administration support, a fair weather fan base (for the most part), a rapid deteriorating season ticket base, and the overall state of the program. Coach Mac captured lightening in a bottle and worked miracles. I don't see it happening anytime soon. Bohn's "homerun" hire has set the program back another 5-10 years in my opinion. And yes, I'm bitter about it.

I've wondered that they were so intent on cleaning up program they never looked at the football side when they hired Hawk.

Unfortunately, as the DP pointed out today:

BOULDER — It would likely cost Colorado well over $3 million to make a change in head football coaches this year, CU athletic director Mike Bohn confirmed to The Denver Post on Tuesday.

Before answering a question about costs associated with a coaching change, Bohn made it clear that he fully supports coach Dan Hawkins and expects Hawkins will build a successful program at CU.

"To be honest with you, we haven't even begun to look at all (the potential costs)," Bohn said. "But if that happened, you would have to figure in relocation costs and so many other things with new coaches and new staff. That's not something we're focused on at this point, however."

Last October, Hawkins received a two-year contract extension through the 2012 season. The new contract eliminated a clause in Hawkins' original five-year contract that limited CU's liability to $850,000 per year.

If Hawkins were to be terminated after this season, his current contract would allow him to recover the three-year income totals from his base salary ($518,773 for 2010-12); income from radio, TV and other appearances ($1,729,572); summer camp revenues ($173,965); and supplemental income from sponsorship support ($704,902). That adds up to $3,127,212.

Additionally, if Hawkins were to be fired before Jan. 31, 2010, he would receive a prorated amount from this year's compensation package.

Additional expenses, including relocation costs and the cost of hiring a new coach, probably would increase the final tally to about $3.4 million, Bohn said.

Tom Kensler, The Denver Post

Hawk is going nowhere. The program is going to have to get so bad, and the pressure so intense on the board, that Bohn and Hawk get kicked out the door together. Maybe some wealthy alums will step up to the plate and make something happen. Otherwise, it won't.

Agreed. You'd think someone with some coin could pitch in based on how the university touts its academic standards. Not to mention all the former Buffs who played in the NFL. I think at one point in the 90's CU had the most players in the NFL.

Sometimes I wonder if the lack of alumni financial support stems from the fact CU is a transient school. I don't know the exact figures, but it has always seemed the majority of students are from outside of Colorado.

You realize that some point, Hawk costs the program more to keep than to fire? They were doing 2 for 1s for Missouri and still had 7 or 8k empty seats. The day after Thanksgiving will be predominantly red.

Talk's gone, Bohn isn't going to come out and say that with 4 games left though.

One thing I'll give Talk credit for is that the stigma that was attached to the program after Barney left is pretty much gone. There's no one left on the team (player-wise) that was around for the scandal. I think they can do something now that they couldn't do when they fired Barnett, look at someone with ties to the program. Bienemy? Embree? Maybe not one of those two, but I think whoever it is will have ties to Mac.

Um Dave Logan might not be my first choice but you are wrong on some of your assertions.

Dave Logan has won everywhere he has coached. Helps with in-state recruiting which isn't great but isn't bad. He is a pro player and has a good pedigree. He has NFL ties and is very connected.

Yeah he is. He's a high school coach with no coaching experience at the college or pro level. I realize he's the great Dave Logan, but the guy ain't the ****. Again, he should never lose a game at Mullen those teams are so stacked.

That's great if he can recruit in-state. This isn't Texas, Cali, Louisiana, Ohio, Florida, or Georgia, you can't build a program with just Colorado kids and he's got no pull outside of this state. No one knows who he is, I doubt even Browns fans can tell their kids about him.

A coach with absolutely 0 coaching experience above the high school level is the bottom of the barrel.

Spare me the BS that he has other things going on. If Dave wanted to be a college head coach, then he needs to put in his time and work his way up the ladder after proving he can get it done as a position coach and then a coordinator at that level. He hasn't.

Yep can't argue with you. If he really wanted to be a college coach he would take the step necessary. But again he isn't the worst choice at this point. But I think if Hawkins goes the school needs to really reflect and figure this out.

The school is long past the McCartney and the glory days. The coaches since haven't panned out. So they need to get this right.

While I agree with your points here and image is better helps. We haven't been top 25 lately. The part I see as a tough sell is

Contract $$$
Backing from boosters isn't the greatest
Program is low (IE Fairbanks era low)
Talent is very bad

Don't get me wrong I want to RTD but, it will take alot of work and the right guy.

jsco70

As I mentioned above, a big name coach is going to want:

1. a huge pile of money which the CU athletic dept. doesn't have.
2. a long term commitment to blow it up and start over...again.
3. better facilities which we all know isn't going to happen due to #1 above.
4. an expectation of some semblance of support from the administration which won't happen either.

In my opinion, CU is going to have to hire a second, third tier guy and hope he can develop. I think they should try and copy the Mac hire with a coordinator from a solid program. The problem in that scenario is CU faces the prospect that the new hire will start to turn the program, then bolt for a higher profile opportunity.

As for Dave Logan, I'm not inspired by him. He would have acted by now if he truly wanted to coach in college. I think his time is past in that regard. Besides, why would he give up his current gig as HS coach, bank spokesman and Broncos broadcaster to face the mighty challenges the CU program will present? Not to mention the fact if he fails. I don't think the rewards will outweight the risks. However, I do admit he would have solid fan support and probably would be given a lot more patience than most.

Looks like UCLA is going to pass on Scott.

I wish Scott the best... but I kinda think that is funny.

He should go to Oregon anyway.

My opinion is that getting a big time coach at CU will never happen. CU wouldn't pay a coach the amount of money to inherit a program with a lack of administration support, a fair weather fan base (for the most part), a rapid deteriorating season ticket base, and the overall state of the program. Coach Mac captured lightening in a bottle and worked miracles. I don't see it happening anytime soon. Bohn's "homerun" hire has set the program back another 5-10 years in my opinion. And yes, I'm bitter about it.


A big reason CU will never land a Pete Carroll, Urban Meyer, etc kind of coach is because of TABOR!

My guess is Oregon or Cal.

Thought it was the Gallagher Amendment?

Regardless, people need perspective if CU Football is the reason they don't like either of those checks on government spending.

Also, how bad would the situation be now if they had to buy out all of Talk's assistants at the same time too?
