I'm thankful Beion has chosen to join our Buffalo family and I applaud Rick George for a truly inspired choice. This is an exciting new chapter in the long, storied history of Colorado football and I look forward to standing shoulder-to-shoulder with our students, supporters, and fans to cheer on "Coach Prime" and our student-athelets next fall
