Colorado Buffaloes Head Coach Jon Embree Officially Announced

Jon Embree was officially announced as the next head coach of the University of Colorado this afternoon at a press conference at Folsom Field. Athletic Director Mike Bohn welcomed Embree and new offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy back to the university where they both played college ball and Embree didn't fail to impress.

I'm honored and I'm humbled to be chosen to lead this great program. As we embark new venture of going to the Pac-12, one of the things I told the search committee was I want this university to be the flagship university for the new conference in everything that we do. When I met with the players this morning, I told them there is going to be a new standard in how we do things. There are no excuses, either you do or you don't. We're going to change the way we see ourselves. We're going to get swagger back in this program. Their job is to help return the luster of this great program.
