Sean Lewis of Colorado will take over as San Diego State’s head coach.

ESPN’s Pete Thamel reports that Sean Lewis, the offensive coordinator for Colorado, will be leaving to take a head coaching job at San Diego State.

Deion Sanders’ staff underwent its first significant reorganization to begin his second year in Boulder. Play-calling duties were recently taken away from Lewis and given to Pat Shurmur, a former NFL assistant.

After serving as the head coach of Kent State, Lewis moved to Colorado and spent five seasons with the Golden Flashes, going 24-31 overall and leading the team to a bowl game in 2019 and 2021.

The 37-year-old assisted in spearheading Colorado’s offensive campaign, which saw Shedeur Sanders set career highs this season. There was some scrutiny following CU’s offensive line surrendering 54 sacks. Sanders’ back was broken by the frequent hits, and he was unable to play in the season finale against Utah.

Lewis is the second member of Sanders’ staff to leave. Tim Brewster, who was responsible for coaching tight ends, announced his resignation on Sunday.

Rumor has it that Byron Leftwich is being considered to take over as offensive coordinator for Colorado.
