While early speculation about Colorado State's Thursday press conference would be about the dismissal of football head coach Steve Fairchild, it appears that will not be the case, according to Arnie Stapleton. The announcement for the press conference only said it was about the "athletic department."
This could mean that athletic director Paul Kowalczyk will not be back. But there is no hard information out on this yet. Kowalczyk signed a five-year extension on Feb. 8, 2010, that would have kept him in position until June 30, 2015.
And if it's not this, well, then the school has fooled us all. The press conference will begin at 1:00 p.m. MT. Stay tuned.
