The Colorado St. Rams have reportedly fired Paul Kowalczyk as athletic director and with a 1 p.m. MT press conference set for later today there has been speculation about if there would be an announcement of a new athletic director. Susie Wargin of 9News believes that there will be a new athletic director later today, but is trying to get confirmation.
A name that has been mentioned to replace Kowalczyk is legendary former Colorado State head coach Sonny Lubick. Wargin contacted Lubick about the open job and Lubick has said that he has not been contacted for the job. Even with that news Lubick would be an instant fan favorite since he was 108-74, won five conference titles, went to nine bowl games and won three of those as the former football coach.
Another name that has been mentioned is former Colorado State quarterback Jack Graham. Graham was a quarterback for Colorado State in the 1970s and is currently a big booster to the university.
