Kent State head coach Sean Lewis leaving for Colorado OC job

Sean Lewis has reportedly resigned as head coach at Kent State in order to take over as offensive coordinator at Colorado under new Buffs’ leader Deion Sanders. Lewis was an OC for three years – one at Bowling Green and two at Syracuse – before his hiring at Kent in 2018.

During Lewis’ tenure, the Golden Flashes have had some of the most productive offenses in the MAC and in all of FBS. Lewis and company averaged 417.9 ypg this year on offense (2nd in the MAC) and 493.4 ypg a year ago, the fifth best mark in the country.

He was 24-31 (19-17) over five seasons at the helm, including two bowl appearances (1-1) and one MAC East division title (2021).

The Colorado program is the talk of college football, with “Coach Prime” making waves by telling players in his first team meeting to transfer out if they aren’t willing to put in the work. Poaching an active FBS head coach to be his OC will further disrupt the college football landscape in and out of Boulder.

More on this once the move is officially announced by either school.
