Colorado State To Announce New Head Coach On Tuesday

The Colorado St. Rams are having a news conference Tuesday at 12 p.m. MT to announce their new head coach. The school has not confirmed who the hire will be, but it is being reported that Alabama Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Jim McElwain is to take over for the fired Steve Fairchild.

Assuming this report about McElwain being hired is accurate, it is a good move for Colorado State football. McElwain has coached in the SEC under Nick Saban for the past four years, he spent a year in the NFL, was an offensive coordinator at Montana State from 1995-99 and grew up in Montana. He also was part of John L. Smith's staff at Louisville and Michigan State.

The only thing that McElwain has not done is be a head coach at any level, but he has the experience from his prior jobs and moving up the ranks to become a head coach is the natural progression.
