    Colorado: Sources tell us former NFL Coach of the Year with the New York Giants head coach Jim Fassel is interested in the job. If he's interested, Colorado should take a long look.

    I saw this popping up on Twitter all the sudden too. I don't know about his pre NYG career. Going to research what college coaching experience he has. Certainly a big name. We've had bad recent history with former NFL coaches although a TE position coach is different than a former super bowl winning HC.

    He is an okay hire. He is not terrible. Better than Butch Jones.

    G-Men didn't win the super bowl under Fassel. We got to the game with him, but got run off the field by the Ravens.

    OK, had a losing record in his only stint as a HC in college (Utah). Not getting any chances in the NFL the past several years. Good coach for the UFL if that actually matters.

    I think he's a no go.

    I'm also a long time Giants fan. I'd take Dave Logan before Fassel. I'd take Joel Klatt before Fassel.

    You will take Dave Logan, a high school coach over Jim Fasel, now I see folks are not taken this seriously. I am not saying I want Jim Fassel, I do want to point out that he is a better candidate than Butch Jones and Dave Logan.

    Be very careful here, Mike. I think he may be using us to leverage a bigger offer from the Peoria Pelicans!

    If you want to go the High school ranks. The Valor Christian coach is better than Dave Logan.

    Pretty sure Fassel was OC for the Donkos under Reeves, or maybe Phillips. Either way, maybe he wants to find his way back to the Front Range.

    He can do that when he's retired.

    I have no real interest in Fassel. However, in my opinion, if the AD is doing it's job correctly they should at least give him an interview. You just never know.

    Disagree. If you absolutely have no interest in hiring someone, why waste your time?
