Re­port: Colorado to hire Ge­or­gia as­sis­tant coach

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Colleges -

Colorado is ex­pected to hire Ge­or­gia de­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Mel Tucker as its new head coach, ac­cord­ing to a re­port from ESPN on Satur­day.

The an­nounce­ment from Colorado was ex­pected to come af­ter the SEC Cham­pi­onship Game, which was played Satur­day af­ter­noon with Ge­or­gia fac­ing Al­abama.

Colorado dis­puted that re­port, how­ever. Ath­letic di­rec­tor Rick Ge­orge “has not of­fered the head coach­ing position to any­one at this point; he is still in the dis­cus­sion and eval­u­a­tion stages and won’t make a de­ci­sion on a fi­nal can­di­date un­til early next week,” Colorado ath­letic depart­ment spokesman David Plati said in an email to the Athens Ban­ner-Herald.

UCF: McKen­zie Mil­ton was set­tled in at home to watch UCF face Mem­phis in the Amer­i­can Ath­letic Con­fer­ence Cham­pi­onship Game, but his pres­ence was felt at Spec­trum Sta­dium. UCF fans went all out in their tributes to the in­jured star quar­ter­back, who suf­fered nerve dam­age and a dis­lo­cated knee dur­ing the Knights’ win over ri­val USF last week.

Mil­ton was re­leased from Tampa Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal af­ter three surg­eries, ac­cord­ing to a re­port by Maria Tay­lor on ESPN’s Col­lege GameDay. She stated doc­tors are en­cour­aged by how much Mil­ton is able to wig­gle his toes and he is slated to have surgery to re­pair his dis­lo­cated knee in four to six weeks.

Texas Tech: Texas Tech in­tro­duced Matt Wells as its new head coach.
