Colorado football: Unspecified changes coming for Buffs

Following a 48-0 rout at the hands of Stanford on Saturday, Colorado athletic director Mike Bohn promised there would be some changes to the Buffs' 1-8 football team, but did not specify what they would be.


Shortly after the Colorado Buffaloes were once again dismantled on Saturday, 48-0 against the Stanford Cardinal, Colorado athletic director Mike Bohn promised changes would soon come to the struggling football program.

He did not specify whether or not that meant changes would be made to the coaching staff.

"We're not where we want to be," he told the media after the game. "No one is happy with what has happened on the field, players, coaches, staff, fans."

Colorado is 1-8 so far this season and is 1-5 in the Pac-12. Their lone win was by one point on Sept. 22 at Washington State.

Some might think that head coach Jon Embree is a potential target, if in fact changes come. The second-year coach is 4-18 so far at Colorado and has won just three Pac-12 games.

But university president Bruce Benson has had Embree's back recently, saying he would not support firing the coach after just two seasons at the helm.

Bohn also said he is working with Embree to assess what changes need to be made.

"Recognizing our shortcomings early in the season, coach Embree, his staff, our leadership team along with football professionals have been engaged in numerous endeavors to address our challenges," he said. "We are working to correct voids now in an effort to not lose time before the end of the season."

Colorado visits Arizona on Saturday, still looking for that second league win.
