    [h=3]Coaching Change at the University of Colorado[/h]November 25th
    Multiple sources have confirmed that Jon Embree has been fired as the head coach of the University of Colorado football team.
    Embree was 4-21 in his two seasons in Boulder. The 1-11 record posted in 2012 marked the first 11-loss season in school history, and the Buffs suffered their first season without a home win since 1920.
    As much as anything, though, it was that the Buffs were, for the most part, not competitive. CU losing margin for the season was 28.1 points per game. Since 1999, just one Pac-10/12 team has been worse (Washington State was out-scored by 31.1 points per game in 2008).
    The Buffs were blown out in most conference games, and the 46.0 points per game against average*was, by almost five points per game, the worst in school history.
    Since Louisiana-Lafayette set an NCAA Division 1 record by allowing 50.3 points per game in 1997, only one Division I team has been worse than CU has been this year. North Texas gave up an average of 47.6 points per game in 2008.
    Jon Embree finished his second season as head coach with a 4-21 record. The .160 winning percentage is the lowest of any head coach in Colorado history. The second-worst record, for any coach with at least two seasons in Boulder, was Chuck Fairbanks (7-26, three seasons, 1979-81, .212). No other CU coach in history posted a winning percentage below .400
