The newest addition to CU’s coaching staff, Robert Prince, figures to be the Buffs’ wide receivers coach — but I wouldn’t be surprised if his duties include a little more than just wideouts.
Prince brings a nice resume to Boulder, one that includes stops with the Seattle Seahawks, Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons. He coached quarterbacks and wide receivers at those stops, and also worked with running backs.
And yes, he has a background with CU coach Dan Hawkins. He worked for Hawk for three years at Boise State, where he served as wide receivers coach for two years before having the title of passing game coordinator added to his title in his third year at Boise.
It’s just a guess, but it wouldn’t be a shock if he had a similar title with the Buffs. Hawkins is planning to make some fairly significant changes in the offense this year, and with o-coordinator Eric Kiesau already also in charge of quarterbacks, I could see Prince having more responsibilities than just wideouts.
Another plus is the potential he brings as a recruiter. An NFL background never hurts when talking to high school kids.
