Daigh Reacts to CU Coaching Change

Brady Daigh, LB, Mullen High

Colorado commit Brady Daigh talks about the recent firing of Colorado Head Football Coach Dan Hawkins. "I heard (the news) on the radio this morning," said the 6-2, 230-pound linebacker of Mullen High in Denver, Colorado.

"I'm still solid with them," he said, regarding his commitment to the Buffaloes. "The team's still there and it hasn't changed my mind."

According to FoxSports.com, former Colorado coach Bill McCartney has publicly expressed an interest in coaching again and remains a "viable candidate" for Hawkins' replacement.

"I haven't had a chance to talk to the (CU coaching) staff yet," said Daigh. "We had practice, and I have finals tomorrow, so I've been stuck studying."

When asked how he thinks Colorado will respond to the midseason coaching change, Daigh replied, "I think they'll be fine. The team has had pieces in almost every game where they've looked great, and I'm sure if they can put it all together consistently they will be a solid team."

FoxSports.com reports longtime CU assistant- and linebackers coach- Brian Cabral will serve as interim coach for the final three games of the season. In the meantime, Daigh will focus on final exams and playoffs as he waits with the rest of the world to see who will head the Buffs in 2011.
