Colorado’s Mike MacIntyre named AP Coach of the Year

Colorado football coach Mike MacIntyre led an incredible turnaround for the Buffaloes program in 2016 which had the team as legitimate contenders in the Pac-12, finishing the year with a 10-3 record and South Division title.

The Buffaloes are now set to face off against Oklahoma State in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 29 — Colorado’s first bowl game since 2007.

In addition to an incredible 2016 campaign, MacIntyre, who was named the Pac-12 Coach of the Year at the end of last month, has picked up yet another honor.

On Thursday, it was announced that MacIntyre has been named the 2016 AP Coach of the Year.

Kickoff between No. 11 Colorado and No. 13 Oklahoma State is set for 9 p.m. ET at the Alamodome in San Antonio on ESPN.
