By now, the coaching carousel in both the NFL and college football realms has subsided in a big way.
Hackett and the Broncos could now add Jon Embree, a former Colorado Buffaloes star and head coach, to their staff as a tight ends coach. The Broncos are reportedly planning on interviewing Embree this week, per Mike Klis of 9News. It could be a good fit as the West Coast offense Hackett is bringing to Denver is exactly what Embree lives and breathes.
After a rough two-year head coaching stint with the Buffaloes, Embree has spent a lot of time around the league, and he could be headed back to the state of Colorado.
If Embree ends up in Denver, he will have the opportunity to work with Noah Fant, a young, up-and-coming tight end for the Broncos. After all, it could get even better if a certain someone from Wisconsin heads to play for Denver next season.
This would be a splashy hire for Hackett, who is beginning his first year as a head coach in the NFL.
