Rams Makes Changes to Coaching Staff

By  | 

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado State coach Steve Fairchild has shaken up his coaching staff, reassigning offensive coordinator Greg Peterson to concentrate full-time on recruiting.

Fairchild made the coaching change in the midst of a six-game skid that dropped the Rams to 3-6.

Peterson's duties of coaching the wide receivers also were stripped. Fairchild and graduate assistant Darrell Ballard, in addition to the other four full-time members of the offensive coaching staff, will coach the wide receivers for the remainder of the season.

Fairchild has been calling the offensive plays since becoming head coach in 2008, when Peterson was among his first hires.
