New Coaches for 2015: Mike Bobo at Colorado State

Name:  Mike Bobo
Team:  Colorado State Rams
Replaces:  Jim McElwain, who becomes the new coach at Florida.
Previous Head Coaching Experience:  None at any level.
Personal:  Age 41.  Wife Lainie, five kids under the age of 12, including triplets.
** Bobo has lived 40 of his 41 years in the state of Georgia, so he’ll be somewhat of a fish out
.    of water in Fort Collins.
** Like his predecessor McElwain, Bobo was an offensive coordinator from the SEC.  McElwain was
.    at Alabama; Bobo, of course, was at Georgia.  He quarterbacked there from 1994 to 1997 and
.    coached under Mark Richt since 2001.  That’s 14 seasons, the last eight as OC.
** Bobo runs a pro-style offense, gaining yards both on the ground and through the air.  It was
.    good for 35+ points per game in the SEC; no reason to think it can’t take the Mountain West by
.    storm.
** Bobo can groom quarterbacks.  Do the names Matt Stafford and Aaron Murray ring any bells?
