Shanahan tag team in Boulder? 8:04 AM ET Colorado Buffaloes Top Email Coach Dan Hawkins still has his job for now, but the calls for his head are getting louder with each week. Should he be fired, one of the most tantalizing possibilities being floated in the blogosphere is that athletic director Mike Bohn is considering a Kiffin-like arrangement with the Shanahans. Under this scenario, Colorado would hire Kyle Shanahan, the offensive coordinator of the Houston Texans, as head coach, and his father, Mike, the longtime Denver Broncos coach, would come aboard as some sort of assistant, a la Monte Kiffin with Lane Kiffin at Tennessee. (Indeed, FootballCoachScoop.com reports that Bohn met with Mike Shanahan on Sunday.) The Shanahans obviously have very close ties to the state, and Mike and his wife just completed a ginormous house (35,000 square feet) in suburban Denver and reportedly are not eager to move. (Would you be?) Kyle turned down a chance to become Minnesota's offensive coordinator last year, citing his desire to remain in the NFL, but running his own program, at age 30 (his birthday is Dec. 14), obviously has a whole different appeal. With a precedent set at Tennessee, this doesn't appear as far-fetched as it may sound.
