Colorado Mesa University, Grand Junction, hired former CSC head football coach Bill O’Boyle effective Monday, March 5, Dana Nunn, CMU director of media relations, confirmed via email Thursday morning.
“He has been hired as assistant football coach,” Nunn stated. “He started work on Monday.”
O’Boyle resigned from CSC that same day.
“Bill O’Boyle submitted his resignation Monday, March 5,” CSC Sports Information Director, Alex Helmbrecht, stated via email Thursday afternoon.
Kara Vogt, CSC director of Human Resources, declined comment about the terms of O’Boyle’s resignation.
O’Boyle will take a $9,129 pay cut with the move to Colorado, where he will serve as CMU’s offensive coordinator.
CMU will pay O’Boyle $16,350 from March 5 through June 30, Jill Knuckles, CMU’s compensation and benefits manager, stated via email Thursday afternoon.
“This equates to an annual salary of $50,000,” Knuckles stated. “Our next fiscal year begins July 1, 2012.”
Attempts to reach O’Boyle for comment Thursday were unsuccessful.
Several emails to each of his three accounts listed in the CMU directory bounced back as undeliverable. As of 5:30 p.m. Thursday, O’Boyle’s CMU email account was still not working.
Tom Krouse, associate director of Telecommunications & Instructional Technology, said in a telephone conversation Thursday afternoon that of the three emails listed for O’Boyle, email@example.com, should be working. However, Krouse added that because the account information had just been uploaded Thursday morning, the system might not be working yet.
