Maryland offensive coordinator Gary Crowton has told the Denver Post that he “very much” would like to be the next head football coach at Colorado State.

Crowton, 54, has held head coaching jobs at Brigham Young and Louisiana Tech. Crowton’s unsigned Maryland contract shows that he has a three-year deal that, in total, pays him $507,440 per year. Crowton’s base salary is $375,000. He also receives an additional $125,000 in guaranteed money for radio/TV, personal appearances, fundraising and endorsements.

“I have contacted the school,” Crowton told the newspaper regarding Colorado State. “I have not heard back from them. I am sure they are putting together a committee and I think they have hired a company and they are looking at candidates. I am just hoping to get in there so they give me a chance.”

Would you like Crowton to return for a second season at Maryland?
