Coach Dorrell retains four assistant coaches from Mel Tucker's staff. Thoughts?
  • Excellent news! Chiaverini, Hagan, Michalowski and Summers will provide stability and continuity ... and help keep recruiting momentum (60%, 291 Votes)
  • Good news, but there are still six spots to be filled. The 2020 season - and beyond, for that matter - will be dependent upon the coaches Dorrell can bring in at this late date. Fingers crossed. (29%, 143 Votes)
  • Glad we kept the four we kept, but disappointed that we lost our two line coaches - Kapilovic and Brumbaugh - to higher paying jobs. Hard to celebrate when CU is still coaches' second choice (11%, 51 Votes)

ESPN gives Colorado a "C-" grade for the hiring of Karl Dorrell. Thoughts?
  • I'm going to ignore national pundits this spring (we know what they are going to say), and wait to see what Dorrell & Co. can produce this fall (71%, 353 Votes)
  • If we're being objective, it's hard to argue with "(Dorrell) isn’t a dynamic personality and will need very smart staff hires (to be successful)" (19%, 96 Votes)
  • Ridiculous. ESPN notes that no one has done as well at UCLA since Dorrell left, but still concludes, "It's hard to get excited (about Karl Dorrell)" (10%, 48 Votes)

What are your thoughts on retaining Darrin Chiaverini at CU?
  • Vital. One of the top recruiters in the country, and he bleeds black and gold. His retention is critical to continuity ... and keeping the roster from disintegrating (68%, 419 Votes)
  • Important. Assistant head coach? Sure. Recruiting coordinator? Of course. Wide receivers coach? Naturally. Offensive coordinator? Maybe ... (22%, 137 Votes)
  • Not life and death. Head coach Dorrell says he is going to hire the best coaches. If Dorrell (or Chiaverini) wants to go a different direction, the sun will come up tomorrow, and CU will be fine (10%, 60 Votes)

Which quote from Karl Dorrell's introductory press conference do you like best?
  • "We're not going to use any excuses (for poor results). We're not going to use, 'Because I got hired this late in the process and spring ball is around the corner'. We're going to get it done" (41%, 163 Votes)
  • "I think we're going to continue with the path that we have right now ... We're going to get back to recruiting the best players" (37%, 147 Votes)
  • "I'm here for the long haul. That's what I want you to know. This is my dream job ... I'm happy to be back home" (22%, 92 Votes)

What Karl Dorrell factoid gives you the most confidence going forward?

  • That Dorrell's UCLA teams went to five straight bowl games - and no Bruin coach has been able to match that mark since (36%, 197 Votes)
  • That Dorrell coached the first, second and third players in CU history to post 1,000-yard receiving seasons (4%, 20 Votes)
