Embattled Colorado State football coach Steve Fairchild met with his new boss Friday and began making his case to stay on the job beyond Saturday's season finale against Wyoming.
Fairchild drove up to the Wyoming-Colorado border with new athletic director Jack Graham for the annual Bronze Boot run and exchange of the game ball between the ROTC battalions from each school.
Graham said Thursday when he replaced Paul Kowalczyk that the chat could be characterized as an interview, and Fairchild said the conversation went well.
Although a loss to the Cowboys would result in Fairchild's third straight 3-9 season, his team was beset by injuries the last two years and he has a strong group of underclassmen returning next season for what is the last year on his contract.
