Colorado Hires Jon Embree as Head Coach

You can officially forget any talk of Jim McElwain leaving 'Bama to go to Colorado. After McElwain interviewed for the job, Colorado has apparently gone into the NFL and hired Washington Redskins assistant Jon Embree:

[Eric] Bieniemy will serve as the coordinator for his good friend Jon Embree, who is expected to finalize an agreement to become the  school's new football coach this weekend. Embree is currently on the coaching staff of the Washington Redskins.

There are still a lot of vacancies out there, and clearly McElwain wants to be a head coach somewhere, so it's still no guarantee that he will return to Tuscaloosa next season. You can, however, cross Boulder off the list of possible destinations for his services.
