Pete Thamel: Colorado expected to hire San Jose State's Mike MacIntyre

Colorado is expected to hire San Jose State's Mike MacIntyre as its next football coach, according to a source briefed on the situation.

After missing out on hiring Cincinnati coach Butch Jones, Colorado re-focused its search and MacIntyre has emerged as the leading candidate.

MacIntyre led San Jose State to a stunning turnaround this season, including a 10-2 record and spot in the Military Bowl on Dec. 27 in Washington, D.C.

The terms have not yet been finalized with MacIntyre, but his hiring is expected to be announced in the next 24 hours. He'll replace Jon Embree, who was fired after just two seasons and a 4-21 record.
