Jon Embree Was In A No-Win Situation As Hawkins’ Successor
Sticking with Colorado for our next coach, we present Dan Hawkins’ successor in Colorado: Jon Embree. Retired from the NFL, Embree spent several seasons working with the Buffs’ program. With Hawkins gone, he finally got his chance to be the big man in charge.
In two seasons as the school’s head coach, Embree won four games. Not an inspiring number for the school almuni. He was fired, but things haven’t gotten better for Colorado. The school has only had one winning season in the last ten years.
