Hawkins gets another year despite 4 losing seasons

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Colorado coach Dan Hawkins will get a fifth season in Boulder instead of a pink slip and a $3.1 million buyout.

Athletic director Mike Bohn announced Thursday that he's sticking with his coach despite a 16-32 record, including 2-20 on the road.

The Buffs have endured four consecutive losing seasons under Hawkins, who has cleaned up a program tarnished by scandal under his predecessor, Gary Barnett, but has been unable to find success on the field.

The Buffaloes (3-8, 2-5 Big 12) wrap up their season Friday against Big 12 North champion Nebraska (8-3, 5-2).
