Colorado State is hiring a former Urban Meyer assistant as its new head coach, but not one who works for Ohio State.

Steve Addazio will be the new head coach at Colorado State, the school announced Wednesday, after reportedly considering Ohio State assistants Kevin Wilson and Tony Alford – among other candidates – for the vacancy.

According to a report earlier this week by Banner Society's Steven Godfrey, Meyer assisted Colorado State in its head coaching search and Alford (a Colorado State alumnus) and Wilson were both among the candidates interviewed for the position, as well as LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda and former Tennessee head coach Butch Jones. 

Ultimately, though, Colorado State opted to go with Addazio, who was the head coach at Boston College for the past six years and was previously an assistant coach for Meyer at Florida.
