DENVER (AP) - A person with knowledge of the negotiations says San Jose State football coach Mike MacIntyre has accepted the head coaching job at the University of Colorado.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the school hadn't announced the hiring, which ends a two-week search by Colorado that included a rejection by its first choice, Butch Jones.

MacIntyre will be asked to turn around a program that's had seven straight losing seasons, including a 1-11 record this year that was the worst in the 123-year history of the program.

MacIntyre has done it before. The Spartans (10-2) are heading to the Dec. 27 Military Bowl in Washington, D.C., two years after a 1-12 showing in his first season.
