Mike Bohn has denied that the University of Colorado has offered the head coaching job to Jon Embree.

"The rumors that the University of Colorado has  hired our next head football coach are untrue. In the interests of the young men in our program, and our fans and supporters, I want to make clear that the search committee has not yet completed its work, and we have not yet offered the job to any candidate. We are hopeful of making a head coach announcement in the coming days and beginning a new and exciting era of CU football."

 John Henderson of the Denver Post based on a discussion with Bill McCartney reported that Jon Embree was offered the job.
