Colorado promoted director of player development Darian Hagan to RB coach.

Hagan's a Buffalo through-and-through, having quarterbacked the team in the early 90's. After hanging up his cleats, he served as an offensive assistant for Colorado from 2005 to 2011. He's served as director of player development in the four years since. In a statement, HC Mike MacIntyre said, "Darian brings a lot of pride and passion to our football program with his history here, and also brings expertise to our running backs. In shifting our offensive staff assignments a little bit, he will give us another dimension in our running game and working with our running backs."

Texas Tech graduate QB Davis Webb transferred to Colorado.

The tea leaves have been pointing this way since Webb announced he'd be leaving the Red Raiders. It's an obvious coup for the Buffaloes, who are expected to be without three-year starting QB Sefo Liufau in 2016 season because of a Lisfranc injury. "I just know it's a good fit with Colorado," Webb said. "I really like what Coach Mac (Mike MacIntyre) and (OC) Coach (Brian) Lindgren are doing with the offense. ... I will get plenty of exposure to pursue my dream of playing in the NFL." The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Webb owns a 46/22 career TD/INT rate. He lost his job to Patrick Mahomes last year. As a grad, Webb is immediately eligible to play. TT HC Kliff Kingsbury has said the 21-year-old has the tools to be a top-five overall NFL pick due to his size, arm and mind. "He has a chance to be very special," Kingsbury said in 2013.

NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock called Colorado T Stephane Nembot "a raw, developmental prospect."

Nembot's playing in Saturday's Shrine Game. He's already been hit with a holding call, so that's not great. Though to be fair, he's still learning the position. The 6-foot-7, 300-pounder initially joined the Buffaloes as a defensive tackle. "He has no clue what he's doing," Mayock wrote. Ouch. The analyst is still intrigued, though, as Nembot's got the kind of huge frame that scouts will feel they can massage into greatness.

Per CBS Sports' Dane Brugler, Colorado T Stephane Nembot "looks the part and has light feet, but his balance issues could keep him from sticking at the next level."

"He was called out by the coaches several times for playing too high and had struggle adjusting to multiple rushers," Brugler wrote of his observations from Shrine Game practices. The 6-foot-6, 310-pound Nembot was a four-year starter in the Pac-12, which is pretty remarkable if you know his story. Nembot, a native of Cameroon, speaks English, French, Spanish and 11 dialects from African tribes. Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Nembot "is a middle round choice with starting potential at the next level."

Colorado redshirt senior WR Nelson Spruce will miss the Shrine Game due to a foot injury.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris reports that while the foot injury is of the minor variety, Spruce won't be testing it out (or risking further injury) by playing in the East-West Shrine Game on January 23. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound redshirt senior caught 89 passes for 1,053 yards and four touchdowns this past season. He's considered a potential Day 3 selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, as he's not exactly a burner.

Texas Tech graduate QB Davis Webb is taking an official visit to Colorado over the weekend.

In addition, Davis told FOX Sports that he expects to have an official visit at Auburn in February. Webb announced his intention to transfer from Texas Tech last month. "I'm just looking for the right school, right fit and for the opportunity to compete for the starting job and to win a lot of games," Webb said. He hopes to make a decision by the first week of March. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Webb posted a 46/22 career TD/INT rate before losing his job to the gifted Patrick Mahomes last year. "He has a chance to be very special," HC Kliff Kingsbury said in 2013. "He has one of the quickest releases and strongest arms I've been around. Very smart, intellectual thinker. Processes things very quickly. Sees the field. Great at checking to the right place."

Texas Tech junior QB Davis Webb announced that he intends to transfer.

Webb put out the notice on Twitter. It read in part: "After consulting with Coach Kingsbury, we both agreed it would be in my best interest to pursue other opportunities to further my education and playing career." While the 6-foot-5, 209-pound junior has yet to decide where he'll be playing in the future, he'll be able to play immediately once he arrives. Because Webb's graduating in the spring, he'll circumvent the NCAA's draconian transfer policies that require players to sit out a season. Webb's high point with the Red Raiders came when he threw for 403 yards and four touchdowns in a Holiday Bowl win over Arizona State in 2013. Patrick Mahomes took over as starter after Webb faltered down the stretch in 2014.

Colorado redshirt senior T Stephane Nembot will attend the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-6, 310-pound Nembot is a four-year starter with experience at both tackle positions. Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Nembot "is a middle round choice with starting potential at the next level." Pauline believes that Nembot was "mistakenly graded as a late rounder by scouts" heading into the year.

Colorado senior CB Ken Crawley will attend the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Crawley uses his "height and long arms to distract and disrupt receivers downfield," according to NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter. Scouts will most want to see if he can press and tackle, as the thin frame and lack of strength have been questioned.

Colorado redshirt senior WR Nelson Spruce accepted an invite to the Shrine Game.

Big pickup for the Shrine Game here. Spruce is probably ticketed for Day 3 because he lacks deep speed, but he's been on the nation's best receivers over the past few years. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder finished with 89 catches for 1,053 yards and four touchdowns this year after posting 106 receptions for 1,198 yards and 12 scores in 2014.

Colorado redshirt senior WR Nelson Spruce caught five passes for 111 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 20-14 setback against Utah.

The Buffaloes close the books on a 4-9 campaign that could have been so much more had the team finished games better. Colorado lost to Hawaii, Arizona, UCLA, USC and Utah by one possession. This game was indicative of the season, as Colorado was shockingly competitive on the road against a very strong team despite having to roll out its third-string quarterback in the second half. Spruce deserved better in his last collegiate season. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder finished with 89 catches for 1,053 yards and four touchdowns after posting 106 receptions for 1,198 yards and 12 scores in 2014.

Colorado redshirt senior WR Nelson Spruce "fits well as a last day draft pick that will line up as a fifth receiver on Sunday’s," according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

"And while Spruce does not possess long speed he comes with great short area quickness which helps him get a step on defenders into breaks or transitioning after the reception," Pauline writes. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Spruce hauled in seven reception for 94 yards and a score in Colorado's 27-24 loss to USC. On the season, Spruce has been super productive, recording 74 catches for 822 yards and 3 scores.

Colorado redshirt senior T Stephane Nembot "is a middle round choice with starting potential at the next level," TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline observes.

"He displays terrific footwork and lateral range in pass protection while offering the size and growth potential to develop into a good run blocker," Pauline wrote. The 6-foot-6, 310-pound Nembot has been a starter for Colorado for the last four years, with experience at both the left and right tackle positions. Pauline believes that Nembot was "mistakenly graded as a late rounder by scouts."

Colorado junior QB Sefo Liufau will miss the remainder of the season due to a Lisfranc injury.

The injury requires surgery. Liufau was forced out of Friday's game at the end of the first quarter with the leg injury. Liufau is one of the longest running starting quarterbacks in the country, earning the No. 1 job during his freshman season and carrying it until now. It was a down season statistically, but Liufau still has a 49:29 TD to INT ratio while with Colorado. He will almost certainly return as the starter next year.

Colorado junior QB Sefo Liufau suffered a leg injury in Friday's 27-24 loss to USC.

Details have yet to emerge as to the severity of Liufau's injury, but it occurred at the end of the first quarter after he took a sack. Tough blow, as the 6-foot-4, 230-pound junior was off to a nice start, having completed 6-of-8 passes for 94 yards prior to being waylaid. Redshirt freshman QB Cade Apsay came on to finish the remaining three quarters. He completed 18-of-23 passes for 128 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Expect further updates on Liufau's status over the weekend.
