    The challenge confronting newly hired Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre in rebuilding the Buffs compares to the task faced by legendary CU coach Bill Mc Cartney in the early 1980s. Both endeavors could be called difficult, if not daunting.
    MacIntyre, 47, left a 10-2 San Jose State team to coach in the Pac-12. The fact that CU is coming off a 1-11 season didn't seem to be an issue. As the son of a coach, he knows that there's nothing like building a program.
    In 2010, San Jose State went 1-12 in MacIntyre's first season. His Spartans finished this season ranked 24th in both polls, and also in the BCS standings.

    I am excited at what we have ahead of us," MacIntyre said Monday while being officially introduced as Colorado's 25th head coach. "We have a long way to go. But I've been there before, and I know what to do. "We will work tirelessly. We will work correctly. And we work with passion. As you get to know me, the one thing you'll say is 'He has passion.' You might say some other things, but you'll say, 'He has passion.' "
    MacIntyre agreed to a five-year contract worth $2 million annually. Details of the contract will not be announced until they are formalized and approved by the board of regents. At San Jose State, he was making about $500,000 in total compensation.
    CU athletic director Mike Bohn flew to San Jose, Calif., on Saturday and interviewed MacIntyre at an off-campus location.
    "The first thing that impresses you about Mike MacIntyre is how he built something so special at San Jose State," Bohn said. "He did it the right way ... with an incredible attention to detail and a plan.
    "You just see a progression of his entire career of milestones. He has stepped up to big challenges."
