Colorado coaching search: Greg McElroy has SEC head coach in mind for Pac-12 opening
Colorado is looking for a new coach after Karl Dorrell was fired on Sunday, and ESPN analyst and WJOX co-host Greg McElroy already has a current SEC head coach in mind for the opening.
“Where do they go from here? Guy that would make a ton of sense to me is Bryan Harsin,” McElroy said on a special episode of his “Always College Football” podcast. “Of course, Bryan Harsin has come under an awful lot of scrutiny with what’s going on at Auburn. Is he in, is he out? How does it all work right there? I don’t know. I can’t answer those things. All I know is that Bryan Harsin can coach football. I know that maybe he may not be the best fit for Auburn, especially those that want to control the program at Auburn. Maybe they aren’t totally onboard with him being the head coach. I know that at Boise State, that guy got it done.”
Harsin, most known for his tenure at Boise State, is often connected to job openings out west. Replacing Dorrell would mean a fresh start for both Harsin, and a program that started this season 0-5 as the Buffaloes have been blown out by more than 20 points in each game.
