Below is the statement released by the Athletics Department regarding the firing of CSU football coach Steve Fairchild

“I would like to thank Colorado State University for giving me the opportunity to come back and serve as head football coach. I would also like to thank all the players that I have had the opportunity to coach, as well as the coaching staff. Their hard work and commitment is greatly appreciated.

“We have made some great strides over the last four years, both on and off the field, and I feel the program is ready to take a major step forward.

“With approximately 19 starters returning for the 2012 season, I regret not having the opportunity to see the process through. However, I realize that college football is a bottom-line business, and I knew when I was hired that I would be ultimately judged by wins and losses.

“I’m extremely fortunate to have been a player, assistant coach, and head coach at my school, Colorado State, with a stint as an NFL coach in between. Nancy and I look forward to the next chapter in this journey of life.”
