CU-Boulder athletic director Mike Bohn announced Tuesday morning that football coach Dan Hawkins had been fired, effective immediately.

Long-time assistant coach Brian Cabral will take over as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season. Cabral, a CU alumnus, had been an assistant coach with the Buffaloes for the past 22 years.

According to Bohn, a search committee to find a new coach will be in place by the end of the week. No timetable for a replacement has been set.

In 58 games at the helm in Boulder, Hawkins acquired a record of 19-39. His son, Cody, is currently CU’s starting quarterback.
“Throughout my career at Colorado, I’ve learned a lot, but I know a lot about college football, too, and I know how it goes,” Cody Hawkins said, when asked his personal thoughts on his father’s firing. “Like Scotty (McKnight) stated earlier, college football is a business and there are a lot of great guys in this business who get put out on the street.”

CU will play host to Big 12 North opponent Iowa State on Saturday at 11:30 a.m.
