Colorado OC Darrin Chiaverini comes off the field after worst offensive season since 1964
Darrin Chiaverini out like Colorado offensive coordinator after a season in which the Buffaloes had trouble moving the ball.
Chiaverini, who has doubled as receiving coach, has overseen an average of 257.4 yards of fouls per game, the team’s fewest since 1964. The Buffaloes also average 18, 8 points as Colorado finished the season Friday 4-8 with a loss at Utah.
The 44-year-old Chiaverini spent six seasons at Boulder under three head coaches. He was brought from Texas Technology on January 1, 2016, by then-coach Mike MacIntyre of the Buffaloes.
Chiaverini served as the offensive coordinator or co-coordinator during his five seasons at Colorado.
Coach Karl Dorrell plans to fill the role soon. He is currently recruiting ahead of the early contract deadline.
“I believe it’s time to go in a different direction,” Dorrell said in a statement. “We needed a new perspective that could bring new life and a different energy with it. Ultimately, we need to do what’s best for the show, and at the same time, definitely wish Darrin the best. the best in his future.”
Chiaverini was the Buffaloes’ standout header in the late 1990s. He led the team with 52 catches for 630 yards and five points as a senior. Chiaverini was the fifth round pick by Cleveland Browns in the 1999 NFL draft.
Colorado let the team’s coach Mitch Rodrigue strike on October 25.
