Note: Mile High Sports erroneously ran with a report from Larry Fitzgerald Sr. that former Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer had been hired as defensive coordinator of the Buffs. That story has been removed.

The CU Buffs have a new man in charge of the defense. Brian Howell reported Wednesday afternoon that Alabama associate defensive coordinator Charles Kelly will join new head coach Deion Sanders in Boulder. Kelly will be the defensive coordinator for the Buffs.

This is the latest move by Coach Prime to lock down what he promised to be the best staff in college football. Earlier this week, it was reported that former Kent State head coach Sean Lewis would join the Buffs as the offensive coordinator.

Although he still has a game to coach with Jackson State, Sanders is wasting no time getting things moving in Boulder.
