Tim DeRuyter, Dave Doeren reportedly high on Colorado's coach list

Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE

The Buffaloes' search for their next head coach is reportedly leading them to Northern Illinois and Fresno State.

As the Colorado Buffaloes try to rebuild their football program, starting with a new head coach, their list is said to be led by Tim DeRuyter, current coach of the Fresno State Bulldogs, and Dave Doeren, who coaches the Northern Illinois Huskies, according to a report by John Henderson of the Denver Post on Thursday.

Colorado athletic director Mike Bohn, according to the article, could also be interested in Jeff Tedford, who was recently relieved of his head coaching duties at California, as well as Utah State head coach Gary Andersen, the lone man on the list believed to have already been in touch with Colorado about the vacancy.

It is reported that DeRuyter, who has led the Bulldogs to a 9-3 overall record in his first season as a head coach (7-1 in the Mountain West Conference), is intrigued by the opportunity, while Doeren, in his second season as head coach at Northern Illinois, is preparing the No. 21 Huskies (11-1, 8-0 in the MAC) for the MAC Football Championship against Kent State on Friday night.
