Brian Early has turned down an offer from Colorado


Barring any sudden changes, defensive line coach Brian Early will stay at the University of Houston, confirmed Wednesday evening.

Earlier in the day, reporter Bruce Feldman from The Athletic tweeted that Early was being targeted by Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffs. Two sources told us that Early was considering the offer, which included a two-year deal and a new title (but similar responsibilities).

The fast-moving negotiation started after CU defensive tackles coach Patrick Hill left Boulder for a job with the Minnesota Vikings on Monday. The offer that Colorado made Early included the new title and a two-year contract. Early has just one year left on his deal at Houston.

Recently, UH signed Tulane offensive line coach Eman Naghavi to a two-year deal.

Early came to Houston in 2019 from Arkansas State, alongside defensive coordinator Joe Cauthen. Early’s DL unit has easily been Houston’s most consistent in the Holgorsen era.

After considering the Colorado offer and situation, Early passed on making the move.

Houston’s spring practice continues Thursday morning.
