    Looks like he will complete the season in Minny. Not leaving to start immediately like Embree.

    It would be awesome to get the two-man tandem!! We'll have great talent BUT we need a great gameplan to get CU on top of the conference compeition again. I'm optimistic, though. Cant wait to see the rest of the staff. Looks like Cabral, Hagan, and Ambrose will probably stay. I hope Greg Brown comes back and we get a great QB coach.

    Welcome back, Scooter!!!

    :dance: :dance: :dance:

    FYI: Minnesota's schedule ends on Sunday, January 2nd. Recruiting Dead Period is December 20th through January 3rd, so he's not really missing much as far as making phone calls or visits. It would be better if he was with us immediately, but others can cover for the 2 weeks of contact and the 2 weeks of planning to follow.

    Trooo. If he's the "recruiting guy" it would be nice to have him pounding the pavement immediately. But, maybe he can do some recruiting while still working with the Vikes.

    Either way, it's a great confirmation for the Buffs, IMO.

    What is so fundamentally important about this is that Colorado is ponying up the money and showing a commitment to wanting to win, because EB ain't coming cheap. Top 10 recruiting here we come!

    I would expect him to make some phone calls over the next couple weeks.

    This could actually be a bonus.

    Mom: "Um junior, somebody from the Minnesota Vikings is on the phone and wants to talk to you."

    5 star kid named junior: "What?? Give me the phone!!"

    This is great news and I have a feeling this staff will pull in a respectable recruiting class.

    Isn't there an exam of some sort that the ncaa requires for anyone who actively recruits? If so, I wonder if EB will have time to take care of that before Jan 3.

    Great news that he's coming here!!! Too bad about him staying with the Vikes though the season, but long term I'm just happy he's on staff.

    Good question, I think it would be more of a letter of acknowledgement of the rules and agreeing to abide by them.

    The other issue would be how permissible is it for him to contact recruits while still actively employed by the Vikings. Does he have to be under contract and on the payroll of the Buffs in order to act as a representative of the school?

    I would imagine there are some restrictions on NFL coaches contacting NCAA/HS players? I don't know the rules

    good news. i still wish EB was named headcoach instead of embree though. it seems like EB is more highly regarded by other coaches
