FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Sonny Lubick is out as Colorado State coach and hasn't decided whether to accept the school's offer to stay on as a fundraiser and goodwill ambassador.

"I have no plans right now. It's too early to speculate," Lubick said Wednesday at a news conference.

Athletic director Paul Kowalczyk said Lubick has a job as associate athletic director available to him "if and when he wants it."

Speculation has been swirling around Lubick's future for days after the Rams finished the season 3-9. They haven't had a winning record since 2003, although Lubick is 108-74 in 15 seasons at Colorado State and is credited with turning an underachieving program into a consistent winner for most of his tenure.

He led the Rams to nine bowl games and at least a share of conference titles in six seasons.

"This episode over the last few days doesn't change anything for me," Lubick said in a rambling farewell before about 200 players, supporters and media. Later he added, "I'll be a Ram until the end of time. I'll be watching."
