CU Buffs hire former Minnesota OC Mike Sanford as their new OC

There is also no real reason to withhold an announcement of "Danny Langsford has been promoted to OC", so the longer this takes, the more unlikely it is that's the direction.
...unless they whiff on their other choices. With the shake up at TCU, I would love to see Meacham here.

“After an exhaustive national search where we interviewed several qualified candidates over a 3-month period, we are pleased to announce the promotion of Danny Langsdorf as offensive coordinator at the University of Colorado.”

I’d give it 50/50.

Should probably hire an experienced O line coach to get this offense on track. Gotta rebuild the foundation before talking about carpet and drapes.

No joke if this happens I’m done. I won’t be able to take this, I just can’t.

Sowder, Mumme, Wristen - in that order. Wristen is an intriguing name that I hadn’t considered. Probably a little too old for the job at this point. We could do a lot worse, though. Most of the names on that list would be a lot worse.

Oh- no.

WAYYYYYY better than 50/50 odds on that.

That's exactly what's happening.

EDIT: HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA I just read the link that @WarBuff posted- like @The Alabaster Yak with his Grizzard joke, I posted Troy Walters as a joke elsewhere in this thread like a week and a half ago. If that's where we end up- yikes. Honestly I could get on board with about half those guys, though.

Mmmmmm wondering if this is an “in the know” list or a “Howell reads the message boards for names + past Buff ties” list.
Or if they are after someone else and trying to throw off other programs. Hard to determine after the last few years.

exactly what I was thinking, lots of KD connects, but that is how this crazy world works.

If Dorrell hires from his NFL network we can forget about the program remaining in a tailspin because it’ll speed directly into the Sun.

Just imagine recruiting being even worse than it is now.

Mike Bohn used to put out a lot of trial balloons in the press to gauge fan reaction. I’m wondering if there’s a little of that kind of thing going on here.

Why would Mike Bohn take the time to float trial balloons on the CU OC job? He has his hands full elsewhere.

If you're narrowing your list based on fan reaction, you're a complete ****ing moron, 100% unfit to make the hire, and should resign from any decision-making position post haste.
If that’s what they’re doing, it’s not to narrow the list. It’s that the guy they want is on that list and they want to see if that will piss off the masses. Langsdorf is on that list.

Sowder being on Howells list shows me 1 of 2 things
1. Howell read that name here from Nik
2. Howell is Nik, Nik is Howell
The resemblance between Howell and Nik is uncanny. Doppelgängers no doubt.

I posted Josh Grizzard as a joke a week ago... This is some seriously depressing ****, outside of a couple guys on that list
If Jeff Tedford is actually healthy enough to coach, and would be willing to work for Karl Dorrell, that would make me happy.

If its Langsdorf or that guy from Syracuse I will consider starting a Maoist insurgency against Rick George and his lackeys.
