The expected news this offseason has finally arrived as Coach MacIntyre received a well-deserved raise and extension through 2021. Coach Mac is now making around 3.1 million dollars a year, starting in 2017, which puts him around 4th or 5th in conference. Stanford and USC don’t disclose their salaries, but its safe to assume that David Shaw is paid as well as anybody in the country. This is a great deal for all sides involved. MacIntyre gets “proved it” money, and the Buffs locked up a great leader for the next part of his career. If CU can keep Coach Mac for nine years or longer, I think just about everyone will be happy.
This announcement comes right before the dead period ends, letting Mac walk into recruits homes with a shiny new deal to match his shiny new Coach of the Year trophies. Now, MacIntyre must make a hire for defensive coordinator and defensive assistant. We can all agree that this was well deserved and Ralphie Report is certainly happy he’s staying in Boulder. Congrats, Coach!
