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.
“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.”
