Embree Fired by Colorado

After only two seasons, Embree is out. man, college ball is cuthroat lately. Too much so, how long can colleges go having 1-3 coaching staffs they are buying out? Auburns buyout is over 11 million for that staff. This football arms race is bleeding insane. From ESPN: Embree, who signed a five-year contract in Dec. 2010, went just 4-21 in two seasons -- including a 1-11 campaign this year with the Buffaloes. The lone win came Sept. 22 against Washington State. Colorado closed out the season with eight straight losses. Included in that skid was a 70-14 drubbing by Oregon, a 48-0 loss to Stanford and a 38-3 setback to Washington. Colorado allowed, on average, 46 points per game in 2012, worst among all FBS schools. Yet as recently as Saturday there were reports that Embree would return for a third year. Embree, a standout tight end for Colorado in the mid-80s, was working with one of the youngest teams in college football as the Buffaloes graduate only eight seniors. Heading into Saturday's game against Utah (a 42-35 loss), Colorado was playing 13 true freshmen. They started with 16 on the season-opening depth chart -- most in Colorado history.
