DENVER (AP) - Jon Embree tells The Associated Press he has been fired as coach of the University of Colorado football team.
Embree said he was heading into a meeting with his players Sunday night and didn't want to comment on his firing other than to confirm he'd been let go by athletic director Mike Bohn earlier in the day.
The Buffaloes just completed the worst season in the 123-year history of the program. They finished 1-11 with their only win a 35-34 win at Washington State on Sept 23.
Embree was 4-21 in two years at Colorado, where he replaced Dan Hawkins.
