Let’s look at potential replacements for now-former Colorado coach Jon Embree, who was fired Sunday. Athletic director Mike Bohn is already in the process of forming a search committee.
Troy Calhoun, Air Force
Colorado went after Calhoun before the school hired Embree, but Calhoun was not interested in making a move then. Could he be persuaded this time around?
Sonny Dykes, Louisiana Tech
Dykes took over as head coach in 2010 and led the Bulldogs to a 9-3 record this season. His spread offense was among the nation’s best. The 2011 WAC Coach of the Year. The son of former long-time Texas Tech head coach Spike Dykes. A former offensive coordinator at Arizona.
Recently fired after long stint as head coach at California. Known for his prowess as an offensive mind. Developed long line of NFL quarterbacks while at Cal, including Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers.
