    so i guess the non-embree crowd should hope for complications.

    Why? Because the Denver Post ****ed up a report, or because a head coaching contract didn't get negotiated, drafted and signed within 24 hours?

    Just got an 850 KOA news update email saying Embree is a done deal. My 850 email update gave me the confirmation on Hawk being out before the Post or the Camera posted anything, so I trust my KOA email updates. It also said Bienemy as OC is in the works but not a done deal.

    you don't think CU is leaking stuff to the post? Quit being naive. If ****head Bohn had his house in order maybe there wouldn't be any leaks.

    I just hope CU never gets into the ship building business. They have so many leaks that thing would sink in a dry dock!

    Yeah, Bohn is leaking inaccurate information to the press so that he can come out later and refute it just so that people can assume he was behind it all and come out looking like a fool. Yep, that's the plan.

    Either that, or people who know half the story or less are leaking what they do know and making up the rest, while other people are freaking out and bitching about CU not making their actions match the leaks....

    No, because of the way Bohn and CU handles anything. I didn't expect a coach to be announced until this weekend anyway. Sorry if I don't think everything bohn does smells like roses.

    Yeah, I don't know how we put up with somebody so incompetent that it takes 10 days after the end of the season to hire a new coach.... :lol:

    The hire might not thrill me, but to seriously be bitching that the process is taking too long is absolutely ****ing hysterical...

    This article is a bit much. It is going to be Embree. The fact he has not signed a contract is creating drama.

    Bottom line, Mike Bohn is on the verge of hiring his 2nd choice from the 2005 coaching search. The one he hired (the home run) failed miserably. If that doesn't say incompetent I don't know what does.


    I'd have more respect for Bohn if he hired the bama OC than this.

    Weak.

    I can't speak for Junc, but I've always thought that Bohn's actions were more lilac scented.

    We have a new coach (Woot) and I look forward to finding out what the staff is going to look like. **** the WA Post and who cares what they are saying right now. It is done and we have upgraded our coaching several levels.

    No maybe you need to get your eyes checked. I could care less when they hire the next coach, just get the right guy.

    Then why bring up the timeline?? Are you telling me it's not what your post says?? Maybe my eyes are better than your memory... :lol:

    Personally I wish we would have taken the time to do a real national search, with candidates from everywhere. But I'm afraid the committee felt the pressure to hire somebody immediately and to hire somebody in the family. I don't like that part. But I really don't understand the bitching at Bohn about what is being reported in the media. I really don't believe that Bohn is running around planting all these leaks... Why the **** would he?? :rolling_eyes:

    Breezing through the content on buffzone, there are two clusterf**ks on the page tonight. Hawk's, $2.1 buyout, and the hiring of a new coach. I can't wait to get behind this train again. Bohn should be fired.

    I don't know who's planting leaks, haven't liked bohn long before this but your point about pressure from hiring within the cu family is correct. To end the timeline dispute, it's in the post to explain i've never complained about said timeline. See, it's all clear now :lol:

    Its doubtful that Bohn is planting leaks in the media. Still, it makes the athletic department look like a bunch of amateurs. Every freaking news event coming from the AD becomes a circus before any announcements are made. The Denver/Boulder media may be a bunch of assholes. But any way you slice it, it makes Bohn and the school look like clowns... and that sucks.

    I don't know why Mac is getting a pass on this? It seems he really **** the bed on this one. He was so concerned with being the puppet master, that he prematurely threw this info out there. Mac was so eager to get HIS guy in there, so he ran out and blabbed in order to back Bohn into a corner.

    I will be SHOCKED if the EB thing comes to fruition. I love Mac, but I think he really put all involved in a bad spot. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    I'm not sure if he did it intentionally in order to get Embree the job, or if he just wanted to get himself a spot as the media's unofficial official contact at this point in the search. But I definitely don't give him a pass on this. It seems to me Bohn's statements were pointed at trying to give CU flexibility on the story in case the Embree negotiations broke down. That's why he kept saying, even today, that there is no hire or even an offer. With Mac's statements it's now going to be obvious if things break down that whoever they go to next was second choice. That's the kind of thing that makes all this look like a circus, and I don't think any of it is coming out of the AD...

    The way this thing is going, I wouldn't be surprised if EB got the HC job and Embree is the OC. Afterall no one has heard from anyone official. It is all coming from people who know bits and pieces of the story. Mac and all the leaks did screw this up for the CU AD, that is for sure.

    Can you imagine if Bohn had an offer out to someone else not in the family at all, and only CU, the "offered coach"and his agent knew? Maybe Bohn gave the mystery man the weekend to get his staff together and mull it all over. Yikes, how awkward would that be on Monday during the press conference.

    As bisonic stated on the other board, Bohn will go with the guy that gives the least resistance. Much like boyle,hawk,mconell-miller, buzz...

    Sooner or later, cu will need to decide on a new AD. CU needed a search commitee for this?

    In Ringo's latest article it says that he is flying to NY to meet with Embo on Saturday. It appears that it is now down to the final discussions will take place face to face to get the final agreement with a handshake. My guess is that they major details of the contract have been finalized but who knows, it could still go South I guess. We will know more on Monday at the latest.
