McCartney said that Embree, currently the Washington Redskins tight ends coach, has been given a formal offer, and CU is hoping he accepts and then hires former Buff great Eric Bieniemy as his offensive coordinator.
Bohn’s statement read: “The rumors that the University of Colorado has hired our next head football coach are untrue. In the interests of the young men in our program, and our fans and supporters, I want to make clear that the search.
Embree was hired in the offseason when Mike Shanahan assembled his Redskins staff. Embree himself is an alumni from UC and got his break coaching tight ends at his alma mater.
