As first reported by Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated, Colorado has selected Mike MacIntyre to be its next head coach.
MacIntyre, who inherited a San Jose State program that resembled an FCS squad, takes over a Buffaloes team that was dreadful the last two seasons under Jon Embree, who couldn't rebuild the program after Dan Hawkins was dismissed.
Colorado was unable to land former Cincinnati head coach Butch Jones, who eventually left for Tennessee. So the program turned to MacIntyre, who led San Jose State to a 10-2 mark in 2012 and a spot in the Military Bowl.
Colorado last had a winning season in 2005 under Gary Barnett.
