Rip comes to CU via the Carolina Panthers
Scherer, 58, was the quarterbacks coach for two years at Carolina after serving as an assistant head coach with the Cleveland Browns from 2005-08. In Carolina, Scherer worked with rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen. While in Cleveland, Scherer coached Broncos backup quarterback Brady Quinn during Quinn's stint in a Browns uniform.
On second glance this is yet another coach that comes to the CU coaching staff directly from the NFL which several of our recent recruits have listed as big reason they have signed on. With the this hire the staff looks to be complete.
