In a statement, CU’s coach Mike MacIntyre said: “I want to thank Darrin for his hard work and passion and wish him the best in his future endeavors. We will begin the search for an offensive coordinator immediately and be in position to add someone to the staff shortly.”
CU ranked 115th nationally in yards per play during the 2018 season (3.75), 109th in yards per play per game (3.92) and 118th in points per game (21.0).
According to Buffzone.com’s Brent Hattem, Cali former offensive coordinator Beau Baldwin is expected to be a leading candidate for the position. Hattem reported that two previous candidates — CU recruiting coordinator Brian Lindgren and former Bears quarterback Jared Goff — also could apply for the job.
However, the Broncos are expected to fill their vacancy sooner than the Buffs, according to Hattem.
