Hawkins will become the offensive coordinator for Davis after having been a head coach at Boise State (2001-2005) and Colorado (2006-2010) and a coach in the Canadian Football League for five games.

Hawkins led his Broncos team to a 53-11 record at Boise State, which led to his hiring at Colorado. The Buffaloes went 19-39 under Hawkins with just one bowl appearance and no seasons with a winning record before his firing.
