    What the hell is Embree weighing. If he got offered he's a fool not to accept. Also F John Henderson. Always with the shot at CU at the end.

    good for Mac- it was time to stop this ****ing charade, leak the news and move on-

    I think Mac did this as a little "**** you" to Bohn.

    I disagree. I think that he was told to go ahead and leak the news by Bohn/CU to show he is still very much in the loop and important to Colorado.

    Mother ****ing Henderson and his jab at the end. I am pissed I clicked on that link.

    Still bummed we couldn't get Mac for 2 - 3 years (as he claims he planned) and then hand it off to JE or EB.

    I sure hope JE's recruiting and assistant coaches are as good as advertised because public perception will not be great with this hire.

    Mac's ultimate goal was to get a black man hired as CU's head coach? Interesting, I guess.

    Well, if he's been offered, he better take it. Here is JE's chance, he'd be foolish to pass it up. The only reason I can think of as far as weighing it, is that MB low-balled him.

    Hopefully EB comes with him. I like Embree, I like him a lot more with EB. Sans EB, he'd prolly bring in someone like Dorell.

    this is 100% correct- I know an ex-player from the 1960s who told me this several months ago-

    If EB comes with him I doubt it will be for long. I guess I should just be happy he will be here for some period of time. I am going to be really bummed if we see him on an opposing sideline in the future.

    Well, I'll bepurprised and pleased if he does. My guess is it will be about half.

    EB? Why leave $300K in the NFL? Doubtful.
    Marshall? Would he really leave Berkeley? Maybe.
    Kennedy? CU is really going to outbid UT? Doubtful.
    Walt Harris? Why in the wrold would he be the QB coach? Doubtful.
    Brown? Probable.
    McGhee? Probable.
    Ambrose? Near certainty.
    Cabral/Biekert? Near certainty.
    Tuiasosopo? Probable.

    We'll see...

    not just 300k, but the seemingly infinite job security of the NFL. you can get fired 3-4 times in "the League".

    if it's not EB as HC, not totally sold on another learn on the job OC...and, as others point out, how long is he content to be #2 anyway?

    I wonder out loud, without moralizing it or judging, if the critical diff b/ween EB and JE was EB's "behavior" issues in the past?

    I agree but as long as he's here for the first 2-3 years of Ebree's tenure to bring in some top talent and ingnite a fire in the hearts of the players then I'm okay with him using his OC role as a stepping stone to a HC job elsewhere. Embree needs a guy like EB the next 2-3 years to turn the corner on our program.

    Are you sure we can't give EB a little closer to what he is getting in the league. JE is going to be cheap, we can spend a little more on assiatants.
    I think Kennedy is making something like 200,000 now, I'm sure we could get close enough to that to entice him. i wonder if Keisau is forced in there as QB coach/passing game coordinator (which is fine with me) instead of Harris. Isn't he under contract for another year.

    The reason I think EB will come along is that there probably isn't going to be an NFL season next year. How long is he here? 2 years, max. But, I bet CU matches or ups the salary he is making right now.

    Time to get behind Embo. One thing I will say for him, from personal experience, is that he is a lot more intense and fiery than he is being given credit for on these boards.

    EB isn't coming to be our OC. I think Bohnhead f**ked us again. And I think that his assistant list is a fantasy.
