Report: CU Head Coaching Job Has Been Offered to Jon Embree

The Denver Post is reporting that former Colorado coach Bill McCartney has confirmed that former Buffalo and current Washington Redskins tight ends coach Jon Embree has been offered the position as the next head football coach at the University of Colorado. Apparently, Embree has informed associates with the Redskins that he has been offered the job and is contemplating whether or not to accept:

McCartney said that Embree, currently the Washington Redskins tight ends coach, has been given a formal offer, and CU is hoping he accepts and then hires former Buff great Eric Bieniemy as his offensive coordinator.


McCartney was a candidate to replace Dan Hawkins but said his plan all along, had he been named coach, was to hire Embree and Bieniemy on his staff and groom one of them to take over as head coach in two or three years. When it became clear he would not get the head coaching position, McCartney said he pushed for Embree or Bieniemy to get the job.
