    No inside info with respect to this theory, so take it for what it's worth -- but this is my best guess about what's transpired over the last 24 hours.

    My guess is that EB previously has told Embree that he was willing to serve as his OC. However, since it's become clear over the past 24 hours that there are only 2 viable head coaching options (Embo and EB), perhaps he realized that Embo's HC candidacy isn't strong enough without EB as OC for Embo to be named HC. Therefore, perhaps EB has leaked to the press that he won't be willing to serve as OC for Embo, therefore forcing Bohn's hand into hiring EB for the head job.

    I think MB is taking the temperature of a few scenarios to try to get a bearing on the fans' choice

    I think most of these sources don't know what they are talking about and EB is the guy who interviewed for the HC job. Since they were both in the same town at the same time this weekend, Embree was also interviewed to make sure that he would be there as the OC. When the reports first came out that both interviewed, the wording was that EB would interview for the HC job and the footnote said Embree would also be interviewed... It didn't say for what. I would think that just showing up to an interview with a list of people you say you would bring along is something that needs to be looked into.

    To me, the staff is probably more important than the HC. I love EB but if he comes with a staff like Dan's then I think I would have to pass. Now if Embree and others with HC potential are on it, then bring that **** on!

    If he's letting the fans dictate the hire then he's an idiot. Due a diligent search, and use the committee and resources at hand, and make a hire. I know it's a HUGE decision, but Bohn & his Bohnie-cronies aren't scrolling through this boards reading the news that Boulder will burn couches if Embree is hired...

    I undertand that both EB and Embo interviewed last Saturday for the HC. My point was that my guess is that both told the other that they'd be willing to work for the other as OC if the other got the job. However, once it became clear that there were only 2 viable candidates, EB realized that he held more leverage than Embo and has leaked that he won't serve on Embo's staff.

    Thus this is why they should just go ahead and hire him. Stop dicking around with all this waiting and get it done. We know who has the most potential and it sounds like EB does too.

    See, I don't think that was how it was written in the newspaper. It just said they also interviewed Embree but EB interviewed for the HC job.

    Just like it just came out that McElwain interviewed. Most people think he just had the interview the other day because that is when the news came out. I heard he had that interview a while back.
