CSU fires head football coach after 16 games

CSU went 4-12 overall under Steve Addazio, who was hired in 2019 to replace Mike Bobo.

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Steve Addazio’s time as Colorado State football coach is done after 16 games.

The 62-year-old veteran coach was fired by the school Thursday, less than a week after the Rams ended the 2021 season and less than two years after his hire.

Athletic director Joe Parker met with players at 11 a.m. and the school officially announced the move shortly after.

“The decision we have made today is not one we take lightly,” Parker said in a news release. “I am grateful to Steve Addazio and his coaching staff for their steadfast commitment to our student-athletes, both athletically and academically, to developing men of high character, and reinvigorating our locker room with a culture of toughness and accountability. However, after a thorough review of where our program stands today and our outlook for the future, looking at the totality of factors, I felt this was a necessary step."
