Ted Miller New Colorado coach Jon Embree is*not wasting any time introducing himself to the Pac-12. After hiring two assistants away from Arizona earlier this week, it appears he found his new offensive line coach at California, hiring**Steve Marshall away from the Bears. The story was first reported by Rivals.com. Marshall is a former Colorado assistant under Gary Barnett, so he knows Boulder as well as*the conference formerly known as the Pac-10. California coach Jeff Tedford only hired Marshall in 2009 after the highly respected Jim Michalczik bolted for a brief -- he never coaches a practice -- stint at Washington before heading to the Oakland Raiders. Embree also has hired former*Buffaloes LB Kanavis McGhee to serve as defensive ends and outside linebackers coach. That's another tie-in to the Colorado team that split the national title with Georgia Tech in 1990, but McGhee also was in the news of late for another reason -- you might have seen this Sports Illustrated article: Confessions of a agent. Of course, that was 20 years ago. Bygones? Embree appears to have a clear plan on what he wants out of his staff, going for Colorado, NFL*and Pac-10 ties. That's sound in terms of knowing a program, knowing*future foes and recruiting. And you have got to love how Embree trashed talked his son, UCLA receiver Taylor Embree, here to the Denver Post: "Taylor is excited," Embree said. "He hasn't beaten me at anything yet, whether it's basketball, pool, PlayStation. . . . He probably thinks this is the time he can get me. He's happy for me. He's a great kid. One of the things is, he grew up wanting to play here, but the opportunity didn't present himself." * * Originally posted by ESPN.com - Pac-10 Blog Click here to view the article.
