Colorado brings in Kurt Roper as quarterbacks coach

Posted: Updated:
BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - -

The Colorado Buffaloes have brought in Kurt Roper to serve as quarterbacks coach.
  
Roper was the co-offensive coordinator and QB coach at South Carolina the past two seasons. He worked with Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre when they coached at Mississippi and again at Duke.
  
In his time at Mississippi, the 45-year-old Roper worked with Eli Manning, who was the 2003 SEC player of the year. MacIntyre said Roper has "great offensive knowledge" after spending a majority of his 22 years in the coaching business in the SEC.
  
Roper will help tutor Steven Montez, a Pac-12 honorable mention last season after throwing for 2,975 yards and 18 TDs. The Buffaloes are coming off a season in which they finished 5-7 a year after capturing the Pac-12 South title.
