Colorado Buffaloes Athletic Director Rick George has denied a report from Denver7 on Monday night. The school responded one day later.
The Denver7 report suggested that Buffaloes head football coach Mike MacIntyre will be fired at the end of the season.
“We do not comment on speculation or unsubstantiated rumors with anonymous sources. Let me just say I have made no decisions regarding the future of the football program. As I’ve stated in the past, we continually evaluate all aspects of our 17 intercollegiate sports programs,” George said.
MacIntyre also said that he has received 100% of George’s support. He also said that the two met two weeks ago.
But he added that the two were also slated to meet on Tuesday.
“Two weeks ago he came in and saw me and said he’s completely behind me. I’ve seen him multiple times since then. He’s never said a word to me about anything to this effect,” MacIntyre said.
“I don’t think my job is in jeopardy. But you’ve got to win games. I do know this: When I came here, this was the worst Power (Five) football program. A laughingstock of college football. When I went to San Jose it was the worst program in Division I football. And we turned that around. We came here and the gold helmet is not tarnished anymore.”
The Buffaloes are presently on a five-game losing streak. The season began with Colorado winning five straight games.
The Denver7 report came on the heels of Colorado losing 31-7 to the Washington State Cougars at home.
MacIntyre has had just one winning season in six seasons at the school. He guided the program to a 10-win season in 2016.
