A major college football head coach has been fired this morning.

ESPN is reporting that Colorado has decided to fire head football coach Mike MacIntyre, as the Buffaloes are on a downward spiral this season.

The Buffaloes have lost six straight games and finished 5-7 last season.

ESPN's Chris Low broke the news.

"Colorado’s Mike MacIntyre has been fired, sources tell ESPN. The Buffs (5-6) have lost six straight games after finishing 5-7 a year ago. MacIntyre led Colorado to 10 wins and a Pac-12 championship game berth in 2016 while earning national coach of the year honors," he reports.

Talk of MacIntyre's potential firing began earlier this month, though many were skeptical of Colorado actually making the call.

It looks like the Buffaloes have in fact made that call, though, and we now have another Power 5 opening.

Stay tuned.
