Colorado gives Mike MacIntyre a one-year extension
Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre received a one-year extension after going 4-8 in his first season in Boulder.
At most schools going 4-8 is likely to put a coach on the hot seat, but at a school that's won only four games in the previous two seasons, it'll get you an extension.
And that's exactly what it did for Colorado's Mike MacIntyre, as Colorado regents voted to extend MacIntyre's contract by a year on Thursday.
"We've been very impressed with Coach MacIntyre's values, his personality, his character, and it's been very impressive to me how the team has responded to the coach and his culture, the culture he wishes to establish," said regent Jim Geddes. "He has mechanisms that clearly are being successful already. I think this was more a vote of confidence in the coach."
MacIntyre's contract now runs through the 2018 season after he initially signed a five-year deal at Colorado in December 2012.
MacIntyre came to Colorado from San Jose State, where he spent three season rebuilding the Spartans program and went 10-2 during the 2012 season.
