DENVER (AP) - Mike MacIntyre is leaving San Jose State to coach the University of Colorado football team.
The school announced Monday that MacIntyre signed a five-year deal. He'll be introduced at a 4 p.m. MST news conference at Folsom Field.
His hiring ends a two-week search by Colorado that included a rejection by its first choice, Butch Jones.
MacIntyre inherits a program that's had seven straight losing seasons, including a 1-11 record this year under Jon Embree that was the worst in the 123-year history of the program.
McIntyre has turned around a program before. The Spartans (10-2) are ranked No. 25 in the BCS and are heading to the Dec. 27 Military Bowl in Washington, D.C., two years after a 1-12 showing in McIntyre's first season.
