CU Board of Regents unanimously approves MacIntyre contract

The University of Colorado Board of Regents today approved a contract extension for CU Boulder head football coach Mike MacIntyre.

The contract has the same terms as presented to the board in February, with the exception of added language regarding training and reporting responsibilities. The vote, which came as part of the board’s consent agenda, was unanimous.

“I appreciate the confidence in me the Board of Regents demonstrated by approving this extension,” MacIntyre said. “I look forward to continuing to contribute to the success of our student-athletes in the classroom and community and on the football field.”
