CU Hires MacIntyre As New Head Football Coach

By  | 

The University of Colorado has hired a new football coach.

San Jose State’s athletic director confirmed to a media outlet Monday morning that the Spartans coach Mike MacIntyre is stepping down to join CU.

MacIntyre led the Spartans to a 10-2 record this season and they were ranked No. 24 in the country at season’s end. It’s unclear so far if he will lead the team in the Military Bowl, when they will play Air Force.

The Spartans, who play in the Western Athletic Conference, have their first 10-win season since 1987.

The Buffaloes fired Coach Jon Embree last month after two losing seasons and looked to be close to hiring Butch Jones from Cincinnati, but he chose Tennessee instead.
