Deion Sanders changes the coaching staff at Colorado.

Colorado has dropped four of its previous five games and has to win two of its last three to qualify for a bowl game.  

According to Brett McMurphy of The Action Network, Deion Sanders has promoted quality control analyst Pat Shurmur to offensive play-caller for Colorado's game against Oregon State on Saturday.  

Sean Lewis, the Buffs' offensive coordinator, will remain on the team and call plays for the game against the Beavers.  

Sanders would have to eliminate one coach from Colorado's on-field staff in order to make the switch. At press time, it was unclear who would be demoted and if the demotion would be permanent or temporary.  

Shurmur was previously the head coach of the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants. He worked as an offensive coordinator for the St. Louis Rams,  

Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings, and Denver Broncos. Lewis left his position as head coach at Kent State to become the offensive coordinator at Colorado.  

Colorado has dropped four of its last five games after opening 3-0. The Buffaloes rank 84th in yards per play, dead last in yards per rush, and are in the bottom four in both sacks and TFLs allowed.
