Discussion in 'Colorado Football Message Board' started by leftybuff, Feb 17, 2010.
Haven't seen or heard of this on any other website or local news. If your referring to the other board as netbuffs aka; matt thompson, you went to the wrong place.
Netbuffs = Matt thompson? really?
I have heard from a reliable source that he was extended. His contract that was up in April of this year was extended through 2012 and there were discussions of subsequent years.
He has done a good job fund raising in a negative atmosphere and has made advances in facilities. His coaching hires are under great scrutiny and as many have pointed out, he will have to be held accountable for that in the future.
Getting that basketball/volleyball practice built is reason to extend Bohn...getting those things done in Boulder is just a pain IMO.
I've said it many times before and I'll say it again: Hiring coaches accounts for about 10% of his job responsibilities. His major responsibilities are public relations and fundraising. He's done a magnificent job in both areas. If he screws up the next football coach hire, he'll take a lot of heat - deservedly.
it is reported now on cubuffs.com that he got a 2 year extension. by the way, is anyone else somewhat disturbed by the headline "bohn extended"?
He deserved an extension.
A lot of people bitch and moan about the Hawkins hire, but I still maintain it was an absolutely fantastic hire when it was made. Whether Hawkins should have been extended is certainly debatable, but his credentials as a head coach at the time of the hire were unmatched. The same goes for Bzzzzz.
The CU athletic director is a difficult job, and I think Bohn has a tremendous passion and joy for it. I believe he really enjoys his work and wants to be at CU. He has not been afraid to be a public figure for CU athletics - something it has sorely needed the past decade or so.
Congrats Mike, now lets find a replacement for Hawk and KMM
I agree. I also think he wanted to fire Hawkins at the end of last season.
OK, Bohn got a raise and probably deserved it. However, the timing release of this article is fitting for Mike & CU. There are many things in this presser that you have to try and read between the lines or maybe he's just a silver tongue devil?
Separate names with a comma.
