Buffs deny offering job to Embree

Are We There Yet

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.

    I’m a proud CU Alum / Buffs fan…I must say that hiring anyone as the new CU head football coach without head coaching or key corrdinator experience is a huge mistake! I don’t care if the new coach has ties to the program or is a former player, what is needed is a quality, experienced coach with a winning history. If we hire a former CU player without head coaching or coordinator experience were being set-up for almost sure failure-whether they understand the program or bleed back & gold, it’s a recipe for disaster. I can almost guarantee you it will once again set this once proud collegiate football program back another 4-5 years. If it’s down to the three coaches mentioned, hire McElwain from Alabama, he’s a renowned SEC Asst. coach from a strong program that knows how to win! CU Administration – make a wise choice, not one that you will regret in 2-3 years. My patience as a CU fan is running thin…we must build another championship caliber football program and accept nothing less than excellence and a winning record!
