College career

As an option quarterback at Colorado from 1988 to 1991, Hagan produced impressive offensive statistics. In particular, in 1989 he was the sixth player in the history of NCAA Division I-A to gain more than 1000 yards passing and more than 1000 yards rushing in the same season. Hagan was inducted into the University of Colorado Athletic Hall of Fame in 2002. He was the starting quarterback in 1990 when Colorado won a share of the NCAA Division I-A national football championship, and in 1989 to 1991 when Colorado was the Big Eight Conference champions. His record as quarterback for Colorado was 28–5–2 (20–0–1 in Big Eight). In Heisman Trophy voting he was 5th in 1989 with 242 points, 17th in 1990 with 17 points and 20th in 1991 with 12 points.

NFL career

After college, Hagan was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the fourth round of the 1992 NFL Draft, but never played for the team. He played five years in the Canadian Football League for three teams: the Toronto Argonauts (1993–94), the Las Vegas Posse (1994), and the Edmonton Eskimos (1995–96). He mostly played as a defensive back and on special teams.

Coaching career

Before his last season, he graduated from Colorado with a bachelor's degree in sociology. When his professional football career ended, Hagan turned to jobs in marketing and then in coaching. He became the defensive technical intern in 2004 for Colorado. The following year he was hired by Gary Barnett as an offensive assistant coach. In 2006, he was one of only two assistant coaches kept by new head coach Dan Hawkins as the running backs assistant coach where he remains at today.
