Chiaverini leaving Texas Tech to return to Colorado as assistant

Darrin Chiaverini was Texas Tech's special teams coordinator and assisted in Tech's passing game in 2015, but for 2016, he'll be returning to his alma mater. Chiaverini played wide receiver for Colorado in the late 1990s, and he'll be returning there this season to coach.

“Darrin brings an excellent expertise in the passing game to us from Texas Tech,” MacIntyre said.  “Tech has a prolific passing offense, second only to Washington State in the NCAA, and we can draw upon what he did in Lubbock.  He is an excellent recruiter and he’s passionate about the University of Colorado.  We’re really excited to have him here, and I firmly believe he should help us improve.

Chiaverini caught 97 passes for 1,199 yards and six touchdowns in his Colorado career.
