Some college coaches might be concerned about what lies ahead after seeing the athletic director that hired them forced out of his job before they ever coach a game at the school. Not Colorado football coach Mike MacIntyre.

MacIntyre was stunned by the news last week that the school had decided to replace former athletic director Mike Bohn, who hired him in December. While he was disappointed to see Bohn go, he's been through this before. In fact, MacIntyre is a little too accustomed to seeing turnover among his bosses.

In the three years he served as head coach at San Jose State, he worked for two athletic directors and three presidents. He is proud to note that he and his assistants were able to take the program from worst in the Western Athletic Conference to first despite the revolving door above him in those three years.

"What that tells me is if they let you do what you need to do, you can have a chance to be successful," MacIntyre said. "When I went through all that, everybody kind of let us do what we needed to do and everybody was supportive. So I trust that the new person coming in will be very supportive."

MacIntyre and his staff recently wrapped up the spring evaluation period in recruiting and is now knee deep in the first of two 15-day windows in which coaches are allowed to work summer camps. CU coaches will remain extremely busy throughout June before finally getting some down time for about three weeks in early July.

It's unlikely that CU will hire an athletic director before August, which means MacIntyre will be trying to get to know his new boss during the busiest time of year for a football coach. MacIntyre said he has no concerns about working for some´ one who didn't play a role in hiring him, but he also believes the relationship between a head coach and an athletic director is extremely important.

"It doesn't affect me and my ability to do my job at this very point," MacIntyre said. "I just don't have the relationship. So the new guy or the new woman that comes in, I'll need to build a relationship with and everything takes time to build relationships."

Chancellor Phil DiStefano informed Bohn he was making a change in the leadership of the athletic department during a meeting in DiStefano's office on May 23. In explaining his decision to the media, DiStefano said he wants to improve fundraising in the department and the overall management of the department and aims to have it function more like a business.

MacIntyre said he understands he plays a key role in fundraising at CU and he is willing to do whatever is required of him to help bring more money into the department.

CU announced a fundraising push in February to secure at least $50 million in private donations for $170m million in planned improvements. The other $120 million would likely be financed by borrowing against future television revenue unless the school can raise more than $50 million in private giving.

The CU athletic department has never raised even $15 million in private donations in any single year.

MacIntyre said improving the football product year after year will help in fundraising and he is always willing to meet with donors who are considering helping the cause.

"I enjoy meeting people," he said. "I feel I get along with people pretty well. So I never look at that as a nuisance. Some coaches look at that as a nuisance. I don't. It's part of my job. So I'll do that every chance they want me to. I like to build relationships and let people find out about the true heartbeat of our program."

MacIntyre said one scholarship player was ruled academically ineligible following the spring semester and will not be a part of the program going forward. He said he could not reveal the player's name until the process has been completed. He said the player was not a regular contributor last season. MacIntyre said all other players who were on the roster at the end of spring ball are expected to be back with the program this summer and fall. ... MacIntyre said players voted on team captains when they returned for summer school this week. He said a handful of players received votes so he is deciding between naming the top three or four players captains or possibly having captains named on a game-by-game basis to allow more guys to serve in the role.
