Rumors are swirling that the Colorado St. Rams have decided on Alabama Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Jim McElwain to be the next coach of the football team. However, the school has not tipped its hand yet on the matter, but an announcement is expected to come on Tuesday at 12:00 p.m. MT.
McElwain, should he be hired, is expected to bring a great approach to the football program, having worked under Nick Saban since the 2008 season. Saban is one of the top coaches in college football and the SEC mindset that McElwain has developed in his four season there should do well in turning around the Rams football program.
McElwain is familiar with the Rocky Mountain region as he was born in Montana, played high school football in the state and then was the offensive coordinator for Montana State from 1995-99.
