Mike MacIntyre's firing is official. He will not coach this week at Cal, and an interim coach will he named. Colorado owes him $10.3 million, which can be offset if he obtains a job in the NFL or as a college head coach. Colorado will hire a search firm. Athletic director Rick George: "There's no doubt that the 2016 season was magical, and it appeared we were headed back to taking our place among the nation's elite. However, analyzing the direction of the program over the last two years, I felt this is the necessary time to make a change."

I'm hearing Colorado athletic director Rick George wants a recognizable name with previous head-coaching experience. Possible candidates include Fresno State coach Jeff Tedford, Boise State coach Bryan Harsin, former Oregon coach and Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich, and West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen, who may be interested in making a move. Syracuse coach Dino Babers also could be an interesting option.
