Deion Sanders is set to name a new defensive coordinator at Colorado.

Cincinnati Bengals secondary coach Robert Livingston is visiting Colorado on Wednesday and is the likely choice for the school’s new defensive coordinator. Livingston, a protege of highly-respected Bengals defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo, has been Cincinnati’s secondary coach for the last eight years.

Livingston has been with the Bengals organization since 2012. Prior to that, he had a stint as an assistant with Vanderbilt. This would be his first job as a coordinator at any level, but his work with the Cincinnati defensive backs has won him praise.

The Buffaloes are going to look quite different in 2024, and understandably so. After a bright start to the season under Sanders, the team struggled down the stretch and saw a significant exodus of coaches at the end of the campaign. Livingston brings NFL experience to the role as Sanders looks to build a long-term program.
