Jon Embree fired as Colorado football coach, according to report

Justin Edmonds

Fielding arguably the worst FBS program in the country will do that, but after only two years?

The Colorado Buffaloes have fired second-year head coach Jon Embree, Bruce Feldman reports. Embree went just 4-21 during his two years at his alma mater, with his 2012 team ranking among the worst five schools in the country and ranking quite comfortably as the worst BCS-conference team.

Colorado fans are not happy:

Whether we agree or not, it's an understandable move. Two years is not a long time to fix a program that had fallen into disrepair under Dan Hawkins, but there have to be signs of progress. The Buffs' only competitive games all year came in a loss to a FCS team, a loss to a team that lost to a FCS team and a win against Washington State that's still confused everyone greatly. Not any way to impress new conference mates.

As for potential replacements:

Embree becomes the fifth coach to be fired on Sunday, joining Gene Chizik, Danny Hope, Frank Spaziani and Tom O'Brien. The complete list of coaching changes is being tracked right here.
