BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- Tyler Hansen doesn't have to glance over his shoulder anymore, and he sure isn't looking back with any regrets.

The senior quarterback, who was constantly concerned about former coach Dan Hawkins pulling him in favor of son Cody Hawkins, leads Colorado and new coach Jon Embree into their Pac-12 debut this fall after the Buffaloes bolted the Big 12.

Hansen is a senior but this is the first time he doesn't have to look back to see if Cody Hawkins will be coming in to take his job.

Hansen twice burned redshirt years to rescue the Buffs' offense only to get bumped back to the sideline.
