If you’re a Colorado football fan, reality bites.
Dan Hawkins simply hasn’t panned out and all signs point to a coaching change.
But rumors about Mike Shanahan and his son Kyle having an interest in taking over the program are laughable.
Mike Bohn recently rolled his eyes at reporters when asked about rumors of the Mastermind — who is the highest-paid NFL coach this season ($7 million) for doing nothing more than chilling in the Shanny Mansion — returning to coaching at old CU.
Now Adam Schefter of ESPN, who covered the Broncos for years at the Denver Post and is very close to Shanahan, is reporting that the two-time Super Bowl winner has been contacted by the Buffalo Bills and is willing to sit down with them to discuss their head coaching vacancy.
I’d be surprised if Shanahan settles for the Buffalo job when more teams in Dallas and San Diego might be in need of a new direction by the end of the season.
CU landing Shanahan would be one of the greatest upsets in college football history.
Now back to reality: Hawkins and the Buffs are 18-point dogs tomorrow night in Stillwater.
