Updated at 4:10 p.m.

University of Colorado Athletic Director Mike Bohn issued a statement denying the Denver Post report concerning 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."

Colorado reportedly has offered the job of head football coach to Jon Embree, the Redskins' tight ends coach.

Former Buffs coach Bill McCartney told the Denver Post that Embree has been given a formal offer and that the school hopes he will hire Eric Bieniemy as his offensive coordinator.

McCartney had been a candidate to replace Dan Hawkins and told the Post he had planned to hire Embree and Bieniemy, with one of them replacing him after a couple of seasons. McCartney said he pushed for Embree or Bieniemy to get the job when it became clear he would not be hired.

Neither Embree nor athletic director Mike Bohn could be reached for comment. Follow Redskins Insider for further details.
