    Ok, it is only offered to him.

    "Colorado: Our sources are telling us that Jon Embree has offered the Tight Ends / Special Teams Coordinator job to former Akron head coach J.D. Brookhart"

    And the Marshall, McGhee info.

    JD Brookhart our new TE Coach/ ST Coordinator?

    "Colorado: Our sources are telling us that Jon Embree has offered the Tight Ends / Special Teams Coordinator job to former Akron head coach J.D. Brookhart."

    http://www.footballscoop.com/the-scoop

    Here is the link to Brookhart's Wikipedia bio: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._D._Brookhart

    Personal:
    Born October 17, 1964 in Pueblo, CO

    Player (wide receiver):
    1984 BYU as a walk on
    1985-87 CSU

    Coach:
    1995-96 Denver Broncos Assistant Coach
    1997-98 Pitt Panthers TE Coach
    1999 Pitt Panthers WR Coach
    2000-03 Pitt Panters Offensive Coordinator/ WR Coach
    2004-09 Akron Head Coach (30-42 record)

    Looks like he took 2010 off from coaching, but I'm not positive on that.

    He has some good experience. Would seem to be a good coach for recruiting in-state.

    Interesting choice, seems like a nice guy after watching a few interviews on YouTube. Should be able to help recruit in-state (played for CSU coached with Denver Broncos) and in Ohio since he's been coaching out there.

    Also, used to be a head coach -- said in an interview basically that he believes in the philosophy of letting coaches coach and players play, hopefully we can get away from Hawk's dreadful micromanaging. I want to see Embree lead the team (coaches and players).

    Just checked out the recruiting classes he pulled in while he was at Akron. Ohio and Pennsylvania were their bread and butter. Sprinkled in some guys from surrounding states (Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Michigan, Illinois). The last few years saw an increasing presence in California.

    Don't know much about him, but I like the fact that he has head coaching experience. I would like a couple of those guys around (including Harris if we get him).

    They also added passing game coordinator to his list. Goodbye Keisau?

    Edit: Walt Harris worked for him for a year... not sure if that means anything or not.

    Brookhart also worked for Harris. Walt Harris was the Head Coach the entire time Brookhart was coaching at Pitt.

    ...Denver Johnson...that's all I have to say.

    I'm not sold on this hire, but like everything, I guess we have to give it a chance.

    Wasn't he the guy who quit a very lucrative sales job and basically camped out a Dove Valley begging Shanny for a job?

    Wasn't Akron the last Division 1 school to get a win this year?

    EDIT: I now see he wasn't there this year. Thus, GREAT HIRE! You might even say his departure was a bigger blow to Akron than Queen James' departure... :smile2:

    DJ was not a head coach at a BCS school like Harris or for that matter at a FBS school like Brookhart. I like the hire, he has recruited Ohio and PA and we can always use some help there.

    The guy was also a coach (I believe OC and WR coach) at Pitt when they had Fitzgerald...that's gotta make the WR corps happy.

    Are we really going to argue whether CU is the state's flagship university? GTFO

    and, as for cherry creek hs, waaaaaaay back in the day, it was like 4 or 5 times bigger than pretty much every other school. i am not impressed that you can draw from a student population 4 or 5 times larger than your competitors and then beat them in sports. they should have, back in the day, won 4 or 5 championships in every sport for every 1 that their competitors won and they never managed that. therefore, in my book, they were and probably still are underperforming toadstools.

    so there.

    i am aware that there are probably other schools as large these days. that doesn't mean they aren't still underperforming toadstools, however.

    :rofl:

    I hope he has maintained the Ohio pipeline, because there's a lot of talent up there. Excited to see if he can open up the Ohio recruiting any.

    Nope, Creek is still twice as big as any other public school in Colorado. Around 4,000 students if I remember correctly.
