Former Colorado State football coach Sonny Lubick is turning down a fund-raising position the university offered after firing the coach at the end of the season.

The school's athletic director received a letter from Lubick today, formally rejecting the offer.

Lubick is credited for bringing the Colorado State Rams to national prominence in his 15 years in Fort Collins. But the team finished 3-9 in 2007.

Paul Kowalczyk, CSU's athletic director, says Lubick will always be a member of the Ram family. The school will still pay Lubick the $256,000 annual salary he is due for two years.

Former Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild will replace Lubick next season.
