SAN JOSE — San Jose State's offensive and defensive coordinators both acknowledged the possibility of joining Mike MacIntyre's new staff at Colorado.

The Denver Post reported that MacIntyre planned to bring defensive coordinator Kent Baer and offensive coordinator Brian Lindgren if the two assistants wanted to join him.

Baer, who is serving as the Spartans' interim head coach for the Military Bowl on Dec. 27, said it's likely he'll make the move. He was presumably a candidate to replace MacIntyre as head coach but SJSU hired Ron Caragher on Monday.

"There's a good chance," Baer said of going to Colorado. "You never know until you get on the airplane, but there's a good chance. It's going to be tough to leave this group but you've got to go where you've got a job." Offensive coordinator Brian Lindgren also spoke of possibly joining MacIntyre.

"The opportunity is there. We're still deciding what's best for my family," Lindgren said.

Caragher said Wednesday that he's in the process of assembling his coaching staff and has some offers out to coaches he's worked with in the past. He also indicated there will be some holdovers from the previous staff, citing the importance of continuity. Terry Malley, the Spartans' wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator, seems a likely candidate to remain with SJSU.
