BOULDER, Colo. -- Jon Embree will be introduced as Colorado's new football coach on Monday morning.
Word got out late last week that Embree, the Washington Redskins tight ends coach, was athletic director Mike Bohn's choice to replace Dan Hawkins, who was fired after going 19-39 in four-plus seasons in Boulder.
"It's a dream job with it being my alma mater and growing up out there, this is definitely the job that I've always wanted," Embree said Sunday.
"You have assistant coaches that have been around college football. A lot of recruiting is selling yourself and selling the program. Obviously knowing both very well, I'm excited about the prospects on the horizon."
Embree will be joined in Boulder next month by fellow former Buffalo Eric Bieniemy, who will finish out the season as the Minnesota Vikings' running backs coach before returning to Colorado to serve as Embree's offensive coordinator.
The Buffaloes have called a morning news conference to introduce Embree as the school's 24th full-time head coach and Embree flew to Colorado following the Redskins' 31-7 loss to the New York Giants.
"I'm excited about it. I'm ready to get out there and see what the landscape's like and get ready to start recruiting," Embree said. "I'll do that for a couple of weeks and then we'll have a dead period. I'll come back here to see these guys and watch them finish the season strong."
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan let Embree leave the team early so he could get a jump on recruiting.
"I'm very happy for Jon. He'll make a heck of a head coach," Shanahan said. "It's a dream job for him. He's done a heck of a job for us. I wish him well."
He'll always be welcome in the Husker family (expect on NU-KU game day), but seeing this I have to say I'm glad we didn't go with him after BC.
Go Big Red.
I can get all of those channels with DirecTV along with every sports package.
I just can't justify leaving DirecTV even with their piss poor customer service given all of the sports they offer. Plus they have more HD.
We'll only pay to watch football and after having Sunday Ticket for two years it wasn't worth it more often than it was. The teams we want to see are either picked up for our local games or are on Sun/Mon/Thur night often enough, and when they are on local/national programming we're not getting our money's worth for the rest of the games because we don't care about them.
And we're always good for a couple PPV Husker games a season minimum, but we hopefully won't have to worry about that anymore starting next year.
My in-laws have Nooks and really like them. They researched the Kindle and the Nook beforehand. My wife and I were planning on getting Nooks ourselves, but we have found the Nook app on our android phones is more than adequate for us so we won't be buying the eReader separate. If we were to though, we'd go with the Nook for a lot of the same reasons Coop mentions.
your in-laws sound crazy....
divorce is your only hope......
They're in-laws, what can you really expect? Being 700 miles away helps too.
Ordered U-verse, but earliest install isn't until Nov. Oh well, I'm not shelling out another $40 for ppv non-conference this season, two games was enough. Hopefully the rest of the conference games will get picked up.
Can you get all of the sports with U-verse?
1) MLB Extra Innings?
2) NBA League Pass?
3) NHL Center Ice?
I know you can't get the NFL package or Mega March Maddness.
The sports is the only thing keeping me with DirecTV.
Looks like a no on all three. ESPN gameplan is all I find that is offered for sports packages beyond the various regional Fox Sports Networks, CBS Sports regional, etc. They do offer the NHL Network. But no MLB Extra, NBA League, NHL Ice, NFL Sunday, or Mega March.
