Colorado, a new member of the Pac-12 starting next season, was hired a new head coach who is interested in bringing back Arizona Wildcats co-defensive coordinator and secondary coach Greg Brown, according to the Denver Post.
The hiring of 45-year old Jon Embree is official, and the former Colorado player is bringing in another former Colorado player as offensive coordinator — Eric Bieniemy.
He is the school’s career leading rusher.
According to the story in the Denver Post:
Embree has shown interest in former Colorado defensive secondary coach Greg Brown, now co-defensive coordinator at the University of Arizona, about returning to Boulder as defensive coordinator.
Embree contacted Brown before landing the job, a source close to Brown said, but hasn’t made an offer. It would be Brown’s third stint at Colorado after serving as secondary coach from 1991-93 and from 2006-09.
The Post speculated that, “It’s expected that Brown would accept the offer. His parents still live in the area and his father, Irv, is a prominent radio talk-show host.”
