CSU starts coaching search

+

One thing that landed AD Jack Graham in some hot water back in December, when he had been on the job about 1 week, was his use of a consulting firm, to the tune of $250,000, to identify head football coaching candidates for the Rams. Fast forward from December 2011 to March 2012 and Graham has to re-tool in the area of men's basketball. The CSU board of Regents only allows for 6 multi-year (non-faculty) contracts of a certain level and this is one of them. Graham says that he is ready to retain the "head-hunter" services again, which is sure to cause another heated debate Fort Collins. Graham has installed assistant Craig Smith, the NAIA Division II national coach of the year in 2007 at Mayville State (ND) as interim coach. Names that have popped up so far include, but are not limited to: Mike Dunlap, Randy Rahe, Scott Nagy, Steve McClain, Scott Sutton and Rob Jeter.
