Deion Sanders says Pat Shurmur ‘most likely’ to be CU Buffs offensive coordinator next season

Colorado head coach Deion Sanders may have chosen his offensive coordinator for the next season.

Sanders told USA Today on Monday that Pat Shurmur would be the Buffaloes' offensive coordinator next season, and he added, "Yeah, most likely."

Sanders recruited Shurmur, a long-time NFL coach, as an analyst last summer. Eight games into the season,

Sanders promoted Shurmur to co-offensive coordinator with Sean Lewis and delegated play-calling responsibility to Shurmur.

Sanders also told USA Today that his son, Buffs starting quarterback Shedeur Sanders, is "OK" and should be fully recovered by the spring after missing

the previous game and a half due to a back fracture and an ankle ailment.

Sanders also told USA Today that the Buffs (4-8, 1-8 Pac-12) are seeking for "older quarterbacks" to come to Boulder as backups in case something happens to Shedeur again. 

The transfer portal opens on Monday. He stated that he is looking for several quarterbacks through the transfer site.
