The Colorado Buffaloes coaching staff is now complete, again. After a wild offseason with players leaving left and right via the transfer portal, the football program is starting to settle down.
However, after Vic So’oto left for a job at Cal earlier this week, the Buffs had to quickly begin searching for a new D-line coach.
Karl Dorrell can’t seem to catch any breaks this offseason but just after So’oto left, the Buffs went to work and locked down Gerald Chatman as their new D-line coach, according to Bruce Feldman of The Athletic.
Chatman makes his way over from Tulane, although he was retained at LSU after Brian Kelly made the move from South Bend to Baton Rouge.
Nothing is official yet, but Feldman’s report suggests that Chatman is leaving Tulane and heading to Boulder in what should presumably be a bigger deal.
Chatman, like So’oto, has NFL ties after having spent a couple of years with the Cincinnati Bengals. Assuming the report from Feldman comes to fruition, Chatman would be a big hire,
The Buffs in 2022 will look vastly different from the team that just played no more than four months ago, but that’s the way things go in today’s age of college football.
