The Denver Post - - SPORTS - By Brian How­ell

BOUL­DER» Brian Michalowski has been in Boul­der for about a month, and he al­ready got a pro­mo­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to a Buf­fZone source, Michalowski will be named the Colorado Buf­faloes’ out­side lineback­ers coach, com­plet­ing firstyear head coach Mel Tucker’s staff of on-field as­sis­tants.

Michalowski, 29, was hired Jan. 7 as di­rec­tor of qual­ity con­trol for the de­fense but has since been moved to a full-time coach­ing po­si­tion. He spent the 2018 sea­son as a qual­i­ty­con­trol as­sis­tant on de­fense at Ge­or­gia, work­ing with Tucker and new CU de­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Tyson Sum­mers.

This week­end, Michalowski was in Ger­many to teach at the 14th an­nual Bavar­ian Coaches Con­ven­tion.

Michalowski was a stu­dent as­sis­tant for four years at Ari­zona State be­fore work­ing in qual­ity con­trol for the Sun Devils in 2011 and as a grad­u­ate as­sis­tant in 2012. In 2013, he was a grad­u­ate as­sis­tant at Wy­oming, work­ing with out­side lineback­ers.

In 2014, he was the de­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor of the Cologne Fal­cons in the Ger­man Foot­ball League, and then worked as the de­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor at Gar­den City (Kan.) Com­mu­nity Col­lege in 2015. He then spent two sea­sons (2016-17) as a grad­u­ate as­sis­tant at Mem­phis, work­ing with the Tigers’ out­side lineback­ers.

CU’s de­fen­sive staff in­cludes Sum­mers (co­or­di­na­tor/safeties), Jimmy Brum­baugh (line), Ross Els (in­side lineback­ers), Travares Till­man (cor­ner­backs) and Michalowski.

On of­fense, the Buffs’ staff in­cludes Jay John­son (co­or­di­na­tor/quar­ter­backs), Dar­rin Chi­averini (re­ceivers), Dar­ian Ha­gan (run­ning backs), Chris Kapilovic (line) and Al Pupunu (tight ends).

The Buffs still have a pair of qual­ity con­trol po­si­tions to fill.
