If Bohn strongly feels that this staff has no chance of turning it around in the future, why suffer through another year of misery just to get to the same endpoint anyway? A terrible year in 2012 probably would kill recruiting and impede any plans to raise real $$ for facility upgrades and ticket sales will obviously decline. Also, I think assistant coaches will start jumping ship at the end of another terrible year. The buyout for Embree is only $500,000 if he is gone at the end of 2012, and Bienemy is due $250,000. $750,000 is chump change given the new PAC 12 TV deal. Also, I think Bohn's job is not on the line - he is exactly what the CU Admin wants, so I think he will get a third chance to hire a coach. Finally, I am not sure Bohn was ever on board with the hiring of this staff in the first place, but the pressure to hire Embree was just too great. Thoughts?
