Colorado athletic director Mike Bohn made his pitch to Cincinnati football coach Butch Jones on Monday.
Jones is Bohn's top target in his search to replace Jon Embree, who was fired last week with three years left on his contract after going 4-21 in two seasons.
Jones and his wife, Barbara, flew back to Cincinnati on Monday night after spending most of the day meeting with Colorado officials and touring Folsom Field.
The Denver Post said a decision is expected on Tuesday.
Jones also is being courted by Purdue.
The Buffaloes are reportedly ready to offer Jones $13.5 million over five years, a hefty jump from the less than $1 million annual salary Embree received.
