Colorado State is prepping for its season opening game against Hawaii without head coach Mike Bobo who has been out on medical leave. He appeared at Wednesday’s practice in a golf cart.
“Obviously, we’re hopeful that this situation begins to resolve itself and we don’t have to go down one of those paths, but we’re prepared to do so if we need to,” Colorado State AD Joe Parker said.
This is a great move in the right direction as Bobo had numbness in feet and admitted to the hospital, so seeing him out and about is a great sign.
There is still the possibility that Bob won’t be on the sideline this Saturday.
“It would be odd,” assistant head coach Ronnie Letson told The Athletic. “That’s who I’ve worked for the last four years. I worked with him in Georgia. We’ve been friends and have worked together for a long time. So it would be odd. This is what he does. He’s a ball coach. So it would be odd.”
No official interim coach has been named and the process of who will call offensive plays this Saturday — that was one of Bob’s duties in addition to being the head coach.
“We’re still discussing all that,” Letson said. “We’re still discussing every option possible. What about this? What about that? It’s a fluid situation right now, so we’re just trying to make sure we’ve got it covered and we’re on top of it if something happens.”
The main thing at this point for Bobo is to get healthy.
