Re: RIP Sam “Bam “ Cunningham


Sad to hear Cunningham has passed. Rest in Peace.

Jerry Claiborne was our defensive coordinator in 1971. Claiborne left to become head coach at Maryland and turned around their program. Coach Claiborne was a great guy and a great coach.
He had a lot to do with our 10-2 record and 3rd in the nation ranking. As usual, Eddie Crowder hired great coaches. Everyone at Colorado was sad to see Coach Claiborne leave, but he wanted to be a head coach and took the chance when it was available.
