Jon Embree clearly isn't happy
Jon Embree was fired after two seasons as Colorado's head coach on Sunday, following the conclusion of a 1-11 campaign. John Henderson of the Denver Post provided an excellent detailing of the factors that went into Colorado AD Mike Bohn's decision and how the move went down.
Embree stated that, though he planned to go on the road recruiting early this week, Bohn's decision did not catch him off guard.
"I had a funny feeling this morning," Embree told Henderson. "Something told me he'd do this."
"He said he didn't feel the trajectory of the program was going in the right direction," Embree said. "I said, 'What direction was it going when I got hired?' "
Embree inherited a program in the midst of five straight losing seasons and, due to attrition suffered during the Dan Hawkins era, Colorado played with one of the youngest rosters in college football, so he has a point. But, ultimately Embree left Colorado no choice. The Buffaloes carried a 3-15 Pac-12 record in Embree's two years, with 13 defeats coming by 25 points or more.
In addition to the losses, growing unrest among CU's boosters drove Bohn to make a change.
"The general feeling I have," said Brian Riley, the moderator of a Buffs fan site, "is all the people who were saying they were going to drop season tickets or cut donations are saying they'll increase them after seeing CU has a vision and is committed to winning football."
Kyle Ringo, Colorado's beat writer for the Boulder Daily Camera, supplied information supporting Riley's hypothesis.

Embree sees something else as the root of his dismissal.
"You know (black coaches) don't get opportunities," said Embree. "At the end of the day, you get fired and that's it, right, wrong or indifferent. (Former Notre Dame coach) Tyrone Willingham was the only one who got fired and got hired again. We get bad jobs and no time to fix it."
