FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The Colorado State football team has its next head coach, straight from a Mountain West competitor.
The Rams have hired Nevada’s Jay Norvell as their next head coach, replacing Steve Addazio after he was fired Dec. 2.
Norvell will be publicly introduced at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday inside the Iris and Michael Smith Alumni Center on the east side of Canvas Stadium. CSU fans are welcome to attend. Details of Norvell's contract are not immediately available.
"From the outset, the interest in our coaching position was significant, but one name and resume stood above the rest from the very beginning — Jay Norvell," athletic director Joe Parker said in a news release.
"When you combine his wealth of coaching experience as an assistant at programs like Nebraska, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, and Texas, as well as five years as a successful head coach in the Mountain West, the choice was clear. I am thrilled to welcome Jay, his wife Kim, and their son Jaden to Fort Collins and Colorado State University."
