According to the Denver Post's Chris Dempsey, new Colorado State Athletic Director Jack Graham a five-year contract worth $260,000 annually. Graham, a former football player at CSU, replaced Paul Kowalczyk on Thursday afternoon.
At his introductory press conference, Graham emphasized how important it would be for him to get the football program back on track:
"I want to see our football team consistently be a top-25 team, competing in a bowl game every year. We have high expectations. I'm not happy with where the CSU football team is. We're 3-8. That is not acceptable."
He is expected to talk soon with head football coach Steve Fairchild and make a decision on the coach's future at Colorado State.
