Mid-season head coaching change

Fifth-year Head Coach Dan Hawkins was fired on November 9, 2010 by Colorado Athletic Director Mike Bohn.[1] Three days prior to the dismissal, Hawkins' 3-5 (0-4) Buffaloes suffered a fourth quarter meltdown that saw the 2-6 (0-4) Kansas Jayhawks overcome a 28-point deficit and outscore Colorado 35-0 in the final 11:05 of the game. It was the biggest collapse in Colorado football history. Hawkins had never secured a winning season during his tenure at Colorado, finishing with a record of 19-39 and in the midst of a 17-game road losing streak. Bohn promoted Associate Head Coach Brian Cabral to fill in as interim Head Coach for the remainder of the 2010 season, as the University prepared for national search to replace Hawkins.[1][15]
