Larry Lewis at a glance...

  • Joined the Colorado State staff on Jan. 14, 2008, only his fourth stop during a distinguished college coaching career that enters its 30th season.
  • Spent at least eight years in each of his previous three positions, including eight seasons (1999-2006) as head coach at Idaho State. His ISU teams produced 13 All-Americans and earlier this decade enjoyed the best three-year success in the program's century-old history.
  • Also spent 10 years at Washington State (1989-98), where as assistant head coach in 1997 he helped the school to its first Rose Bowl in 67 years. The Cougars nearly upset the eventual national champion, Michigan.
  • Enjoyed a stellar playing career, as he contributed to an Oregon state prep championship as a high school senior in 1976, and a I-AA national championship as a Boise State senior in 1980.
