Lubick offered fundraising job
Eds: UPDATES with details, quotes. Will be led.
FORT COLLINS ” Colorado State University has offered coach Sonny Lubick a job as an associate athletic director focusing on fundraising.
Athletic Director Paul Kowalczyk announced the offer Monday. It was the clearest signal yet that Lubick’s coaching career with the Rams is over after 15 years. Kowalczyk said in a written statement the school has offered to pay Lubick his base
coaching salary for the remaining two years on his contract. Kowalczyk said Lubick’s assistants would receive compensation for the next three months or until they find other jobs.
Lubick is paid an estimated $530,000 annually but it was not immediately clear how much of that is his base.
Lubick is 108-74 at Colorado State, led the Rams to nine bowl games and won or tied for six conference championships. The Rams finished 3-9 this season after beating Wyoming on Friday.
Kowalczyk said university President Penley wants Lubick to stay on in some role.
Penley “has made it very clear that Sonny Lubick will always have a place at Colorado State University,” Kowalczyk said.
“Sonny’s reputation, record and service to CSU have clearly earned that. Any discussions we’re having at this point are focused on his plans and what he’d like to do in the next phase of a very distinguished career.”
