Former Colorado, who runs back, has taken his name from the pool of candidates to be the Buffs head coach, according to several reports.

The school conducted interviews this week to find Mel Tucker’s replacement. Tucker left Colorado for the State of Michigan. The Spartans paid him double that what he was doing in Colorado.

NBC 9 News reported:

Meanwhile, CU interviewed receiver trainer and interim head coach Darrin Chiaverini on Monday, former Wisconsin head coach and current New York Giants coach Bret Bielema on Tuesday, and Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian on Wednesday. Air Force trainer Troy Calhoun was also on the CU’s radar. A source said his interview is scheduled for Thursday.

Like Bieniemy, Sarkisian is said to remain in his current position. The former USC and Washington coach met with Nick Saban and will remain Alabama’s offensive coordinator, according to ESPN.

Bieniemy is waiting for an NFL job?

Bieniemy has been one of the most popular assistants interviewed by NFL teams for head coaching jobs in the past two seasons, though he didn’t get a top job with a pro team. Bieniemy has interviewed seven times in the past two seasons and interviewed four times with NFL teams after the 2019 season.

Since the Chiefs’ offensive will be great again in 2020 as the team defends its first Super Bowl title in 50 years, there is no reason to believe that Bieniemy will not be a target of NFL teams in the next off-season, who are looking for a trainer again with or without the Rooney rule.

And while Colorado is Bieniemy’s school, it’s easy to understand why he considers an NFL job to be more appealing than returning to Boulder. Colorado has been a mediocre Power Five program for the past 20 years. The Buffaloes have only won 10 games twice since 2000. Bieniemy played for Colorado from 1987 to 1990. The Buffaloes have won 11 games with the team in each of their last two seasons.

Where is Colorado going from here?

Colorado is in a difficult situation as the only top-class college football team looking for a head coach at this late stage of the game. Tucker’s recruiting class is signed at the school and is waiting to see who the team’s next coach will be. The soccer exercises in spring are just around the corner.

For sports director Rick George, this is not an enviable position. But Mark Dantonio’s resignation just before the day of signing left Michigan State in a strange place. And the Spartans’ search for a coach – and their willingness to pay the highest price for a coach – had a direct impact on Colorado when the school focused on Tucker.

Calhoun could be the wild card when searching in Colorado. The Air Force trainer knows the Colorado landscape well and was extremely successful in Colorado Springs. He would in no way be a lively employee. But he could be the guy best positioned to make Colorado a multi-year bowl team and stay for a while.
