Bonnett MUGRud2010-11gb31The list of potential Colorado College coaches is down to 10, including current assistants Joe Bonnett and Eric Rud.  A nine-member advisory committee whittled down an initial list of 60 applicants on Monday.

The group will spend the next week or so vetting the second round’s 10 down to a more-workable number of two up to eight finalists for more in-depth interviews, athletic director Ken Ralph said on Tuesday.

“We are really happy with the 10 candidates. Any of them would make an excellent head coach,” said Ralph, who confirmed Bonnett and Rud are among those 10. “They have both done an excellent job over the past nine days keeping the program moving forward.”

Neither assistant will comment during the hiring process.
