When I talk to Pac-12 coaches about Colorado, it sounds like a mess.
A lot of players have left. Coaches seemed unhappy.
Former USC defensive line coach Vic So’oto was hired Dec. 30 to coach the defensive line but quit to become outside linebackers coach at Cal.
Colorado coach Karl Dorrell said So’oto left to be closer to his family but So’oto disputed that on twitter.
I’ll address this once since I now have family and close friends reaching out to check on us. Proximity to “support” was not on the list of my reasons to leave CU. This next opportunity was purely one I couldn’t pass up. I’ll go anywhere to coach if the opportunity is right.— Vic So'oto (@Coach_Sooto) March 1, 2022
My take: So’oto decided he needed to get out of Colorado, even if it meant not coaching his natural position (defensive line).
