Four years later, Nebraska names LSU’s Pelini coach
December 3, 2007
Bo Pelini is the new head football coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, leaving the defensive coordinator post at LSU for a job many Cornhusker fans thought he should have been given four years ago.
Interim athletics director and former head coach Tom Osborne announced Pelini's hiring Sunday, after introducing Pelini to the players.
"We need a head coach with strong defensive credentials and great leadership," Osborne said.
