you should tell people what you told me hahaha
Bohn showed a lot of balls to make this change, and he's definitely put his own job and his own legacy on the line.
Now aren't you glad you didn't run him over on Friday?
Great move on his part
Glad to see he has the reigns to the AD. Now lets see what he does with them.
Appears they gave JE a chance to make deeper changes and he refused. That to me was a horrible option. Either fire the guy or don't. You can't dictate his staff and I don't know if JE could have done better. Not sure a career position coach who just completed two miserable years was going to have much luck attracting talent after such a neutering.
Moving on was always in everyone's best option.
Thank you Mike Bohn. Now let's hit a real home run with this hire and get the Buffs back where we belong!!!!!
You're absolutely right. The safe thing to do would have been to keep Embree for another year.
We give Bohn a lot of flack around here. Some of it deserved, most of it not, IMO.
Was he told to fire EB and he didn't want to ?
I'm not going to give Bohn credit for this if what I've heard is true. The fact that he was willing to keep Embree if he made a couple coaching changes is absolutely pathetic...
MB now has a chance to put his signature on the AD and this move will determine his legacy. He has done quite a bit with tied hands in the past but now he has his name on the whole thing. There are going to be a lot of the old guard that will be lining up to hammer him at every turn. MB stepped out big time today and I am one who is exited to see some of the apparent politics being stripped out of the process.
Now I think everyone can agree his legacy on this football hire being a success.
Can't believe they fired him. No way in hell did I think he was going to go. Maybe they got enough pressure to do it don't know. I'm sure recruiting will be a wash but we need a guy with experience and an OC and DC who have got it done and have experience. CU needs to figure out what system they want to run and stick to it.
Mike is in the place every real player wants to be, live or die by your next move.
Well he is 0 for 2 so far. Hopefully he can be 1 for 3.
0 for 2 is a success ratio your posts would kill for....
Poor, you can do better than that.
My perception of Mike Bohn has gone up exponentially over the last week. He made the enormously difficult, but right decision on Embree. He did not go into hiding and faced the firing squad at the press conference. He spent two days appearing on every local radio show to answer questions, including shows that he knew were going to be very hostile.
The dude made the decision and did not hide behind it. Now just get me a great new coach!
+1. We'll have to see who the new coach is, but I'm beginnning to think Bohn is actually a pretty shrewd fellow -- he politely took the heat and let the B4L crowd self-immolate, particularly with the McCartney remarks, thereby ridding himself of their meddling in the future. On top of that, Benson is now publicly acknowledging the importance of footaball to the University, calling it the window to the school (to paraphrase). Maybe its just luck, but, if not, then well played sir!
Maybe Bohn knew that Embree wouldn't fire his assistants. Embree says no, Mike say's hasta lavista.
+1 and belated rep! Forcing staff changes at this point wasn't going to fix this. That said, do you think if Embo had been pursuaded to get bonafide, BCS-level coordinators from the get go, this situation would have been avoided?
Absolutely true. I was very suprised MB made the bold move. It was the right thing to do and the hard thing to do.
