The Colorado Buffaloes have reached out to Utah State Aggies head coach Gary Andersen to see if he is interested in filling the same position in Boulder according to a report from John Henderson of the Denver Post.

In his four seasons with the Aggies, Andersen has turned around a program that went 4-8 in his first two years to winning the WAC with a 10-2 record this season. Andersen led Utah State to its first bowl game in 14 years last season and will once again be bowling this year with the Aggies participating in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

Before taking the job at Utah State, Andersen was the defensive coordinator for the Utah Utes from 2004-08 and was the head coach at Southern Utah for the 2003 season, compiling a 4-7 record at his only year with the FCS school.

The new coach would be replacing John Embree, who was relieved of his duties after compiling a 4-21 record in two seasons with the Buffaloes.
