Mike MacIntyre, former CU Buffs coach, hired as Memphis Tigers defensive coordinator

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis has hired former Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre as defensive coordinator after he filled the same role at Mississippi this past season.

New Memphis coach Ryan Silverfield announced the hire Thursday and called MacIntyre “the perfect fit to lead our defense.” The move is pending completion of state hiring protocols.

MacIntyre went 30-44 as Colorado’s head coach from 2013-18, including a 10-4 season in 2016 that included a Pac-12 South Division title. Before coaching at Colorado, MacIntyre went 16-21 at San Jose State from 2010-12 and posted a 10-2 record his final year.
