    Chiaverini will serve to replace Troy Walters as wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator while also being named co-offensive coordinator, a position he held at Riverside College for four years before heading to Texas Tech.

    The one-time Colorado standout was a top candidate to join the staff as soon as Walters left. By all accounts, this is a very strong hire for Mike MacIntyre and the Buffaloes, Chiaverini is seen as an up-and-comer in the coaching ranks while still having some experience in the positions he will be asked to fill at CU. Combine that with his knowledge and passion for Boulder and you’ve got yourself a great addition to the staff.

    At Colorado, Chiaverini won in three bowl games and was a part of two 10-win seasons, in 1998, as a team captain, he caught 52 passes for 630 yards and five touchdowns. That year, the fan favorite was awarded the first ever Buffalo Heart Award.

    Below are some comments from MacIntyre and Chiaverini from the press release issued by CU:


    “Darrin brings an excellent expertise in the passing game to us from Texas Tech. Tech has a prolific passing offense, second only to Washington State in the NCAA, and we can draw upon what he did in Lubbock. He is an excellent recruiter and he’s passionate about the University of Colorado. We’re really excited to have him here, and I firmly believe he should help us improve…He was a former captain and a terrific player here, so it will be great to have a Buff on the staff.”


    “It’s unbelievable, it’s something that’s been burning inside me and is obviously close to my heart. I can’t really put into words how excited I am to come back to a place I call home. Working my way up through the coaching ranks, it’s something I’ve always had my eye on to return to Colorado.

    “I wanted to be a part of the program when I was younger, watching CU games in California growing up,” he added. “The stars just aligned to make a dream come true a second time.”
