Red flag is the question of whether he ran the Defense under Odom or did Odom.? Odom is a DC first and foremost. If Walters has yet to run the defense, then HC is a big leap.

I had same question with Tucker. Walters inexperience makes it a bigger question.

Merits an interview, to test how ready he is. Could be a superstar, but the risks have to be vetted.

At this stage of the game, all the candidates are a risk. Unless you get an Odom.

Walters is like at least a few years to five years away from a HC position. Same for Chev.

Pass for now but check back later.

I would be very interested in Ryan Walters as the next defensive coordinator at CU. He has been a star in the SEC to the point that the new MU HC kept him on as the DC.

I believe that the only way he could become CU’s DC is if Bieniemy is the CU HC. That would send a bunch of Buff fans bat**** crazy but he would be a fantasic hire at DC for CU. Walters is a rising star in the industry.

I'd love that. But I think I saw that Walters is making $900k at Mizzou. We'd have to beat that and probably need to add something to the title (AHC?) to make it look like a promotion. Can we pay that kind of cheddar for our DC?

I believe that the OC in this setup would not be a play caller and could come at a lower price, freeing up money for Walters. CU needs to join the million dollar AD club and it would be great if Walters was that guy.

Bonus Baby: Great way to get to see Walters up close to see if he is HC materiel in a several years when Bieniemy moves on.

I think there is a case to be made that this is the first time CU has had former Buffs that would be legitimate options for various positions. Bienemy as HC, Walters as DC and Chev as OC (would be taking cues from Bienemy).

Do you think Walters would need more than a pay raise to come back to where he grew up and went to school?

Maybe not, but I posted that because he was interested in the HC job and I assume that a lateral move offer might be kind of an insult.
