    Since the football team sucks and many of us are hoping there is a head coaching change in a couple weeks - I would like to see Allbuffs undertake a project to help Bohn out with identifying and picking out some potential coaching candidates to consider.

    I suggest that we make three different categories (and therefore three different threads):

    Current head coaches
    Current offensive coordinators
    Current defensive coordinators

    I think we should all spread out and pick one. I have a week to research my potential candidate, and then I post in the thread giving the reasons that my particular candidate should be hired as CU's next head coach.

    For example - if it was 2005 and I thought the Buffs should hire Dan Hawkins, I would post in the "Current head coaches" thread and give my justification for why he should be considered for CU's head coaching position. I could talk about how many games he's won at Boise State, how many bowl games, etc.

    For example - if I thought that Mike Stoops should be the next coach, I would post in the "Current defensive coordinators" thread and give my justification for why he should be considered for CU's head coaching position. I could list his past head coaching experience, his experience in the Pac 12, the performance of his defense, etc.

    Rather than spending the next two weeks endlessly bitching about the coaching change which very possibly won't come - lets divide up and come up with our own picks and give our justifications for said selections. Once we've identified all the potential candidates, we can spend tons of time debating which one we think would have the most success at CU.

    Who is interested? I'd be willing to pick one from each category and provide a synopsis on why I think each would be a good coach at CU, to get the ball rolling.

    Can't we just get Simon Cowell and the PAC12 NETWORK to produce a reality show called "so you think you can coach"?

    Since we might be stuck with Embree for the next 12 months, a reality show to select CU's next coach would provide a nice diversion.

    I'm new to following Colorado. Thinking of attending there so learning more about the program and that led me here. As far as coaches, how about Bobby Petrino? He is available and has been a big winner everywhere he has gone.

    Welcome, hopefully you go to CU. I would be in favor of Petrino but the CU AD/University in general is WAY too pc to allow this

    This sounds complicated, can't we just throw out names randomly like in every other thread? I'll start: Bill Cowher.

    I don't think Embree is gone after this season...as horrific as it is to say.
    That being said, a name I like that may not go anywhere now, but might after 2013...
    Dave Doeren, Northern Illinois.
    When he was DC at Wisconsin (2006-10), they never finished worst than 38th in total D and had studs like Watt.
    At NIU, he's 21-4 and has a great offensive system...Harnish was incredible last season and Jordan Lynch is fantastic.

    If we´re really lucky we can tempt Josh McDaniels to come back to Colorado. The last HC we hired from the Patriots was an astounding success.

    Paul Chryst isn't going to leave Pitt (where they have better facilities and a better recruiting base) to come to CU. Add on to the fact that he isn't a douche like Todd Graham so he's not going to leave after one year.

    Despite his impressive resume, he has that same exact "deer in the headlights" look as HC on the sidelines that Embree displays.

    He did lose to a FCS team, though.

    I'm still a fan of Chryst, but that's definitely worrisome.

    Wasting our time on this thread...We can re-visit it after next year. Embree not going anywhere. To throw a name out there I like Pat Hill

    Where are the categories for the following:
    NFL tight end coach with no coordinator experience
    NFL running back coach with no coordinator experience

    Realistically Embree isn't going anywhere. Brown is gone at the end of the year. Who knows with Bienemy.

    Also be realistic with what coaches will come here. Right now CU football is a great place to commit career suicide.

    James Franklin of Vanderbilt would be a my first choice. He would be tough to get though.

    Dave Doeren at Northern Illinois ftw. He's the total package.. BCS coordinator experience and doing well as head coach turning around a small school. Midwest guy. Please send truckload of cash his way and make it happen.

    Only an idiot like Bohn and the rest of those morons running things in Boulder would be scared to fire Embree because he is black. I am an African American CU alumnus and I think it is absolutely criminal that there is not a serious on going discussion of who our next coach should be. This is not a matter of skin color. It is a matter of incompetence and the dignity of a once proud CU program.

    I am plain ashamed of the CU football program. Embree and his coaching staff have done everything possible to tarnish a once proud tradition. The fact that more CU players from the past, more boosters and more alumni are not outraged and shouting at the top of their lungs everyday befuddles me. From time to time, one prominent person will speak out and then all goes silent. Too many people seem comfortable with the present situation in Boulder for my liking. It signifies too many losers in our midst.

    Doeren (NIU), Taggart (WKU), McCall (NW), Wristen (CSU-Pueblo), Dykes (La. Tech). I know Wristen could be a risk but he has major conference experience and has done wonders at CSU-P, what I'd really like is to see someone like Doeren or Dykes or Taggart come in as coach and try Wristen as DC

    You should send Mike Bohn a letter / email and let him know your position / feelings on the matter.

    Utah State just ran out of bounds allowing La Tech to have an extra 40 seconds or so. La Tech came back and tied it. OT on the way.
