Colorado coaching rumors: Fresno State's Tim DeRuyter, San Jose State's Mike MacIntyre being considered

Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE

Fresno State's Tim DeRuyter and San Jose State's Mike MacIntyre are rumored to be on Colorado's radar.

The Colorado Buffaloes are searching for a new head coach after Cincinnati's Butch Davis declined the school's five-year, $13.5 million offer. There are a pair of coaches who are rumored to be on the short list for Colorado, and they are Fresno State's Tim DeRuyter and San Jose State's Mike MacIntyre.

Both head coaches are coming off of great years.

DeRuyter completely turned around a Fresno State team that won four games in 2011, and led them to a 9-3 record and a share of the Mountain West title.

DeRutyer is familiar with the Colorado area as he was the Air Force defensive coordinator from 2007-09. One downside to DeRutyer is that he only has one year of head coaching experience.

MacIntyre first became San Jose State's head coach in 2010, and has improved the team each year with the 2012 season being the best with 10 wins and the school's first ever appearance in the BCS standings.

The coaching experience for MacIntyre has been a mix between NFL and college jobs. The San Jose State position is the only coaching job he's held that has been located in western part of the United States.
