Colorado analyst gives his favorite in Buffaloes’ head coaching search

The Colorado Buffaloes are preparing to face USC this Friday night, but they are also trying to hire a new head football coach. The Buffaloes are also wondering about their position in the Pac-12, with lots of realignment rumors swirling around San Diego State, Gonzaga, and the Pac-12’s attempt to secure a new media rights package.

With Colorado facing USC this week, we wanted to talk to Buffaloes Wire editor Jack Carlough about a wide range of topics.

In a separate article, you’ll find Jack’s thoughts about the Colorado-USC football game and how the two teams match up.
