What ‘Coach Prime’ is bringing to the table
There has been nothing but excitement since the announcement of Sanders becoming the newest head coach of the CU Buffs and he’s been fueling that fire since the flame was sparked on Dec. 3.
“I have the best coaching staff assembled, some of the best scouts, some of the best kids that we’re recruiting, some already coming on the way as I speak,” Sanders told the crowd of hundreds who whooped and hollered at his answers from among the dozens of reporters at his introductory news conference on Dec. 4.
Soon after his hire, Sanders assembled his staff consisting of veteran coaches who have helped develop more than 350 all-conference players and 85 All-Americans. He had a $5 million budget to work with for his assistant coaches.
