Colorado State hired the first Black head football coach in program history Monday, bringing in Nevada's Jay Norvell to take over for Steve Addazio.
Norvell is coming off a season in which he guided the Wolf Pack to an 8-4 record and a spot in the Quick Lane Bowl against Western Michigan on Dec.
Colorado State fired fiery coach Steve Addazio on Thursday after a tumultuous two seasons that included an ejection in what would prove to be his final game for the Rams.
The decision came on the day Addazio’s buyout dropped from $5 million to $3 million.
The player with the most receptions in college football midway through the first month is not a fleet-footed wide receiver with an NFL-bound quarterback.
Rather, it is bruising Colorado State tight end Trey McBride, who is drawing praise not only for his pass-catching, but also his blocking and leadership.
