There's at least one school that has taken notice of the work Gary Andersen has done at Utah State in recent seasons.

According to a report in the Denver Post, a representative from Colorado has made contact with Andersen about Colorado's vacant coaching position. CBSSports.com's Bruce Feldman has also been told of dialogue between the two sides.

Colorado fired coach Jon Embree on Sunday after only two seasons at the school, as the Buffaloes won only four games in those two seasons.

As for Andersen, it's not hard to see why Colorado or any other school would be interested in him. In his four seasons at Utah State, he has transformed a program that hadn't had a winning record since 1996. After going 8-16 in his first two seasons, Andersen's Aggies have gone 17-8 the last two years and won the WAC this season.

It's the school's first conference championship since it won the Big West in 1997.

Andersen's team beat Utah earlier this year, giving it as many wins against Pac-12 opponents as Colorado had this season.

The same report also mentions that Colorado School of Mines coach Bob Stitt is not a candidate for Colorado's head coaching vacancy.
