Co-offensive coordinator Dave Lay is regarded as one of the nation's finest strategists.
Lay returns for his third stint on Colorado State's coaching staff.
He was an original member of Sonny Lubick's staff at CSU, named offensive coordinator on Jan. 11, 1993.
The 2007 season marks the second time during Lubick's 15-year tenure Lay will have been a staff member.
Lay previously coached at Colorado State from 1982-87, then returned from 1993-96.
During Lay's previous stops at Colorado State, he has tutored some of the finest offensive performances in school history.
While serving as the Rams' offensive coordinator from 1993-96, Lay also doubled as the team's offensive line coach.
CSU won back-to-back conference titles in 1994 and '95 and played in the Holiday Bowl.
In each of those four seasons during his most recent time with the Rams, CSU had a first-team all-conference offensive lineman.
Colorado State's offensive performances annually ranked among the conference leaders.
Lay also had a distinguished college coaching career at his alma mater, San Diego State, and was a legendary prep coach in the San Diego area.
Prominent Players Coached
Coached four all-conference first-team offensive linemen at Colorado State, including Bob Cox (1993), Pat Meyer (1994), James Cregg (1995), and Mark Rogowski (1996).
Meyer and Cregg both entered the coaching profession, following Lay's footsteps, after their playing careers ended.
