Colorado coach Jon Embree is thought to be safe in his job for at least one more season based on comments made earlier this fall by school president Bruce Benson...
So what has changed over the past six weeks that might lead to a different decision?
Damage to the CU brand.
CU has been demolished on the football field in seven consecutive games. The reputation of the program -- and, yes, the school -- has taken a hit.
Officials aren't doing their jobs if they don't at least consider every option regardless of costs. After all, there are few examples of coaches overcoming these types of situations in the past at other programs. The vast majority are eventually fired.
Parting ways with Embree would mean paying off the final three years on his five-year deal as well as the final three years on offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy's contract. That would cost $2.25 million.
