Report: Pat Shurmur joining Deion Sanders’ Colorado staff

Former NFL head coach Pat Shurmur is joining Deion Sanders’ staff at Colorado, 247 Sports reported.

Shurmur, 58, has spent the past week on campus and will join the Buffaloes as an analyst, per the report.

He would bring more than two decades of NFL coaching experience to Boulder, including a 19-46 record as head coach of the New York Giants (2018-19) and Cleveland Browns (2011-12). He was also the interim head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles for one game in 2015.

Shurmur most recently served as the offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos from 2020-21. That’s the same role he held with the Minnesota Vikings (2016-17), Eagles (2013-15) and St. Louis Rams (2009-10) among several other positions dating back to 1999.

His last job in college football was as Stanford’s offensive line coach in 1998.

Colorado kicks off its first season with Sanders as the head coach on Sept. 2 at TCU.
