Sanders, who became Colorado’s head coach earlier this year, has recently faced health issues related to poor blood circulation. He underwent this operation to avoid having to amputate his foot. Sanders had two toes amputated while at Jackson State after blood clot issues.

Now it looks like Sanders will soon be fully recovered for his first season with the Buffaloes — a season that will begin with a fair share of hype and criticism after leaving HBCU Jackson State with a 27-6 record. Nearly 20 players left Colorado for the transfer gate after Sanders effectively told them to earlier this year, while around 45,000 spectators attended the Buffaloes’ spring game. Colorado will also get a lot of national television attention in Sanders’ first season at the helm.
