Sean Lewis of the Colorado Buffaloes
You want an explosive offense that can keep opposing defenses on its toes, Sean Lewis, currently the offensive coordinator of the Colorado Buffaloes, is someone who can help make that possible for your favorite football program.
One of the most interesting operators of the veer-and-shoot offensive system, Lewis is able to put up points pretty much everywhere.
While he’s not a head coach at the moment, Lewis was able to build a steady, solid amount of success for a Kent State Golden Flashes program where it’s really, really difficult to sustain victories. The Golden Flashes have only been to five bowl games in program history and Lewis helped get them to two of those bowl games.
Lewis is now working with Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes and though there have been some complaints about the way the offense operates, most of the issues can likely truly be attributed to the personnel and the offensive line talent problems that Lewis and Sanders are trying to navigate.
It remains unclear if Lewis would leave Boulder for Starkville (Colorado is a really pretty place, by the way), but a head coaching gig in the SEC would be a fascinating prospect for a guy whose offense has helped the Buffaloes crawl out of the Pac-12’s basement.
He knows what it’s like to win and overcome adversity. He knows what it’s like to coach in less-than-ideal circumstances. Lewis is a fascinating option for a team that needs to find a way to score points.
