Colorado State Interested In Former Denver Broncos DC Don Martindale

According to a report from the Denver Post, former Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Don Martindale is a strong candidate for the same position at Colorado State. Martindale and new Rams head coach Jim McElwain have some history together:

Martindale and new CSU head coach Jim McElwain​ were on Art Shell​'s coaching staff with the Oakland Raiders in 2006. Martindale, 48, was spotted this past weekend on the Fort Collins campus visiting with prospects during recruiting weekend.

Martindale was the defensive coordinator for the Broncos in 2010, and then was replaced by Dennis Allen. Martindale also has coached at Notre Dame, Cincinnati and Western Kentucky at the college level.
