    ... as a possible HC candidate? :confused:


    A lifetime Buff ... a great recruiter who has successfully coached linebackers under several head coaching regimes. Is he not interested in being a HC ata major program or what?

    What would you consider a major program?

    Milestone Moment for Cabral
    But this recent Longmont Times Call article is most telling. (Nov. 6th "Buffalo Solider")

    Some of the reasons he stayed is that he wanted to let his kids go to school in one place.
    His youngest is graduating this year.

    I have to believe with all the opportunity he may have had here, there is a reason why he has not been chosen. Not EVERYBODY has the makeup to be a HQ...doesn't make him a bad Assistant though.

    The main knock on him is that he's never been a coordinator. Most big programs are wary of naming a HC who has never been a coordinator. Doesn't mean BC can't do it, it's just something that stands out on his resume.

    He was interim head coach after Barnett left.

    I think it has provided him with a pretty darn good life without having a giant bulls-eye on his chest all the time. He has raised his family in Boulder, gets paid very well as an assistant and get to travel home to Hawaii quite frequently to recruit.

    I'd definitely let him interview if I were Bohn. Find out if he has a serious plan for the team and who we'd hire for assistants, etc.

    He mentions often that he did not want to jump from job to job and have his family change homes and schools. That was what he valued and by staying at Boulder - which is a great place to live while you are at it - he had some job stability and did right by his family.
    Whether we can keep him now, if there is a coaching change, when he no longer has kids in school? That will be another question. Hopefully they give him a coordinator job this time around and prepare him to be a HC somewhere, if that's what he wants. He's given many good years to CU, and I am an appreciative fan.

    You're right.

    I thought he was interim from Feb. 2004 through December when Hankwitz was brought in (and coached the Champs Sports Bowl.)

    Looking this up, I found that Cabral applied to be HC at Northern Colorado in late 2004, and that factor meant CU brought Hankwitz in instead of naming Cabral Interim coach -- because they thought Cabral might get the job.

    He did interview at Northern Colorado and didn't get it. I kind of wonder why. Maybe he does not interview well.
