FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Colorado State coach Jim McElwain is settling into his new office less than 24 hours after helping Alabama win a national championship.

Fresh off beating LSU 21-0 on Monday night, McElwain, who served as Alabama’s offensive coordinator, began plotting a course to get the Rams back on track. McElwain said his priorities include recruiting, picking his staff and getting to know his players.

He may have to pitch the program to quarterback Pete Thomas, who’s contemplating a transfer. A highly touted recruit, Thomas started both his freshman and sophomore seasons at CSU. He injured his left knee against San Diego State on Nov. 12 and missed the final three games.

McElwain has been juggling both jobs since accepting a five-year deal with the Rams last month to replace Steve Fairchild.
