Jim McElwain Ranked No. 9 New Head Coach Hire By CBS Sports

New Colorado St. Rams head coach Jim McElwain was recently named the No. 9 new hire by CBS Sports. He comes in ahead of the likes of Jim Mora (UCLA), Norm Chow (Hawaii) and Terry Bowden (Akron). However, Paul Chryst (Pitt), Larry Fedora (UNC) and TIm Beckman (Illinois) come out on top (but not inside the top five).


McElwain was ranked as high as No. 5 and as low as No. 14. If he can create a winner at Colorado State, and soon, McElwain could move into the top of the 2011-12 class of hires.
