http://www.buffzone.com/ci_15482417 CU Buffs OC Eric Kiesau was locked up for three seasons recently (2009, 2010, and 2011). Kiesau's name also has been brought up frequently as a short term replacement for Dan Hawkins if Hawkins was to be fired as the CU coach at one point this upcoming season. Normally coaches are not removed from their coaching duties until the end of the season when they have been fired. With Kiesau under contract for two more seasons, CU is now prepared for everything relating to Hawkins. CU has a bye week after the Hawaii game. If CU goes 0-3, expect a coaching change to be made during that bye week. Mike Bohn gave Hawkins the dreaded vote of confidence a couple of weeks ago at a Colorado coaches luncheon. Now with Kiesau being signed through the 2011 season, I believe this puts Hawkins on notice that he cannot afford another bad start to the season. I hope Hawkins is ready to coach up the boys and kick some Ram rears...he has been put on notice indirectly (I believe).
