Susie Wargin of 9News is reporting the Colorado State Rams have fired Athletic Director Paul Kowalczyk:

BREAKING: Sources have confirmed Colorado State will announce the firing of Athletic Director Paul Kowalczyk this afternoon. #9News 26 minutes ago via web · powered by @socialditto


The university had extended Kowalczyk in 2010, an extension thought would keep him under contract for several more years. Kowalczyk was serving his sixth year as the university's athletic director.

The reported firing comes amid growing expectations that the university was poised to fire football head coach Steve Fairchild after the team went 3-8 through 11 games this season. However, it appears the organization may have grown dissatisfied with the overall grown of the athletics program instead.

According Wargin, the university does not have a replacement prepared yet.
