Air Force football coach Troy Calhoun remained quiet when asked about Colorado's vacancy Thursday afternoon.

"I was at practice today, trying to make the Air Force Falcons better, that was our sole purpose," Calhoun said. "I'm all about football that's what we're doing here, we're all about Air Force football."

Calhoun and former Arkansas/Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema remain among the top candidates for the Buffaloes opening.

After an 11-2 season, News 7 sports reporter Troy Renck confirmed that the 13-year head coach at AFA did interview for the position earlier this week.

However, the former Air Force graduate would only answer questions regarding the Falcons spring practice and players/coaches currently with the program.

"What happened at practice today, do you guys want to talk about that?," Calhoun said. "Guys what do we have about practice today? The way the guys moved and the way they worked?"

Several sources have indicated the Colorado athletic department is looking to move quickly after the shocking departure of head coach Mel Tucker to Michigan State last week.
