CBS4 Sports has learned a decision on the fate of CU's Dan Hawkins has been made. He is out as head football coach after five tumultuous seasons in Boulder. All that remains to be announced is when exactly Hawkins will leave.

Sources tell CBS4's Vic Lombardi that Hawkins will address the team at a meeting Tuesday morning. At that time we should learn if he is leaving immediately or if he'll be allowed to finish out the season.

Hawkins' firing has been long expected. Many CU fans were actually hoping he would be dismissed at the end of last year. Hawkins' record stands at 19-39. In his five seasons, the Buffs have never finished with a winning record and reached only one bowl game. The low point may have come this past weekend when CU blew a big lead and lost to Kansas on the road.

If Hawkins leaves immediately, assistant coach Brian Cabral is expected to take over for the remainder of the season.

And to think Georgia fucking lost to Colorado! How fucking embarrassing is that? I think everyone saw this coming. Maybe next time Hawkins takes a big time job he won't play his son at QB. Just a thought.
