Following up on a report from the Denver Post that Colorado had offered their head coaching job to current Washington Redskins tight ends coach Jon Embree, the school has released a statement denying that they have hired someone or even offered the job to anyone.
Here’s the statement from athletic director Mike Bohn:
“The rumors that the University of Colorado has hired our next head football coach are untrue. In the interests of the young men in our program, and our fans and supporters, I want to make clear that the search committee has not yet completed its work, and we have not yet offered the job to any candidate. We are hopeful of making a head coach announcement in the coming days and beginning a new and exciting era of CU football.”
In fairness to the Post, it was actually former CU head coach and current candidate Bill McCartney stating that the job had been offered to Embree.
