NU Athletic Department: Pelini Will Continue

LINCOLN -- The University of Nebraska athletic department issued a news release late Saturday morning regarding the latest on head football coach Bo Pelini's job status.  

Statement from University of Nebraska Director of Athletics Shawn Eichorst on Coach Bo Pelini

Issued to Local Media Saturday, Nov. 30, 2013


"My approach has always been to not comment publicly about our coaches until their full seasons are complete, as I strongly believe it is unfair and counter to best practices.  However, given the volume of unfounded speculation and conjecture about our head football coach, I want to reaffirm what I have said many times since I have arrived at the University of Nebraska -- that I positively respect, appreciate and support our football student-athletes, coaches and staff, as we do everyone in the Husker family.  We very much look forward to our upcoming bowl game and Coach Pelini continuing to lead our program in the future."


No release has been issued from UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman's office at this time.
