Mitch Rodrigue fired as CU Buffs offensive line coach – The Denver Post

The Colorado Buffaloes fired offensive line coach Mitch Rodrigue Monday.

The position “will be handled internally” for the rest of the season, according to a news release, with graduate assistant Donovan Williams and quality control coach William Vlachos taking the reins.

“I felt this was the appropriate time to make a change,” head coach Karl Dorrell said in the release. “We still have five games remaining in the season and can work hard to do what we can to improve our offensive line play. We have struggled most of the season, and without much consistency up front it’s been hard to find an identity for our offense. Not all of this is on Mitch, but in the end it falls on the coaches.”

Rodrigue, 56, was hired in March 2020 as part of Dorrell’s original staff.

The Buffs (2-5) will head to Eugene, Ore., to take on No. 7 Oregon at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
