One day after helping to bring eight new offensive linemen into the Colorado football program,the most in more than 20 years,assistant head coach and offensive line coach Chris Strausser decided to leave.
Strausser is returning to Boise State to serve as tight ends coach and running game coordinator. He spent five seasons at Boise State prior to coming to CU with coach Dan Hawkins a year ago.
Wonder if Strausser leaving has anything to do with Hawkin's recent rave?
His first recruiting effort may not have been everything he had hoped for, but first-year UAB head coach Neil Callaway still had a reason to smile.
Callaway and his coaching staff received national letters of intent from six offensive linemen, five running backs and four defensive tackles. They also welcomed four defensive backs, one linebacker and a combination punter/place-kicker.
Callaway stopped short of singling out impact recruits. However, he did say "out of 25, I expect half of them to play next year."
