Mike MacIntyre's coaching staff takes shape as Jan. 2 announcement approaches

US PRESSWIRE

Colorado's new coach is waiting out bowl games to officially pursue the coaches he wants to join him in Boulder.

Colorado head football coach Mike MacIntyre continues working through his transition from San Jose State but will soon be able to fill out his coaching staff to begin fully preparing for his first season in Boulder.

Thanks to the turnaround MacIntyre engineered with the Spartans, San Jose State and the remainder of the coaching staff have the Military Bowl to attend to next week. The No. 24 Spartans play Bowling Green in Washington, D.C. on Dec. 27th.

While MacIntyre waits in Boulder, his former defensive coordinator Kent Baer will serve as the interim coach for the Military Bowl. According to reports, Baer expects to jump to Colorado with MacIntyre once his work is complete in San Jose, so he remains non-committal with his comments.

"There's a good chance. You never know until you get on the airplane, but there's a good chance. It's going to be tough to leave this group but you've got to go where you've got a job."

The Buffs need help on both sides of the ball and San Jose State's offensive coordinator, Brian Lundgren, is also expected to join MacIntyre's staff. The Spartans put up more than 35 points per game this year under Lundgren.

MacIntyre will formally reveal his coaching staff in an announcement scheduled for Jan. 2.
