Weber State coach Randy Rahe’s name has come up in connection with the Colorado State job recently vacated by Tim Miles.
Rahe was at CSU from 1991-98 and has long ties to the state of Colorado. From his WeberStateSports.com bio:
He began his coaching career on the high school level in Colorado. During his tenure as the head coach at Stratton High School (1985-88) he was twice named District Coach of the Year leading his teams to district and league championships in 1986, 1987 and 1988. His teams posted an overall mark of 54-17, earning two third-place finishes in state tournaments.
Rahe got his first taste of coaching on the collegiate level in 1988-89, when he joined the staff at Colorado College as an assistant. He went on to serve as an assistant at the University of Colorado (1989-90) and the University of Denver (1990-91) before beginning his long association with Stew Morrill at Colorado State and Utah State.
Colorado State AD Jack Graham told the Coloradan he would hire a search firm to vet candidates but had not chosen one yet.
