By Barry Svrluga

Redskins tight ends coach Jon Embree spent time in the locker room after the Giants game shaking hands with tight ends Chris Cooley, Fred Davis and Logan Paulsen, making plans for dinner when Embree is able to get back to Washington after his introduction as the head coach at the University of Colorado later this week.

"It's a job I've always wanted," said Embree, a Colorado alum.

Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said he meant to address his team about Embree's impending departure after the game, but in the wake of a 31-7 loss it slipped his mind.

"We're very happy for Jon," Shanahan said. "He'll make a heck of a head coach. ... It's a dream job for him. He's done a heck of a job for us, and I wish him well."

Get out while you still can. :ols:

Genius. Which teams have coaching vacancies?

And no, I don't want him at Miami... Any other suggestions? ;)

Can you image Haslett at the U? Ha, that would be funny.

I say he's more of a Michigan man myself. He'd fit right in with that defense. I'd take the wolverines defense right now than the redskins.
