Bellotti pulls name from Colorado's list

Well, we can scratch one name off of the list of potential Colorado football coaches.  Former Oregon head coach and current ESPN analyst Mike Bellotti has pulled his name from consideration, saying that the timing just isn't right for him to get back into the coaching game.

"At this point, the timing wasn't right for me," Bellotti told The Denver Post. "And I'm not sure it's the best fit. It's a combination of all that. Colorado is a great job for anybody, and I didn't want to stand in the way of focusing on somebody else."

Bellotti went on to say that his family played a role in this decision, as he didn't want to uproot his son -- who is a high school junior -- for his senior season of high school.  Of course, while the family is a convenient excuse to have, there's also the fact that the money Colorado could offer Bellotti probably isn't in the neighborhood of what he's looking for.  Which he hinted at a bit while discussing the differences between the facilities he was used to at Oregon, and would have to deal with at Colorado.

"There's a need to move forward and improve them," Bellotti said. "There's a need, too, for the administration, the boosters and everybody to get on the same page and help Colorado football."

As for who Colorado will now turn its attention to, the Denver Post lists Air Force's Troy Calhoun, Les Miles and former Colorado head coach Bill McCartney as the members of athletic director Mike Bohn's "A-list."  Of course, considering the way the Buffaloes have played under interim coach Brian Cabral the last few weeks, you have to think he's making a case for himself.

I think the interim Coach Brian Cabral is making an excellent case for himself to be considered coach. This team was in shambles when he took over and now they are playing well. He's a Buff through and through and has this team starting to play to its potential. If he beats Nebraska there is no reason he should not be on the short list. We went after the big name last time in hiring Hawkins and look how well that turned out.

Why in the world would Les Miles even think about leaving LSU for Colorado?Still think the best fit could be Mike Leach...I know what happened but still I think he could turn them around.Heck with things the way they are now most teams would let Hitler coach them if he could win 9 or 10 games.
