Huskers' Pelini gets one-year extension
March 7, 2014
By The Associated Press
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska football coach Bo Pelini has received a one-year contract extension through February 2019.
Athletic department spokeswoman Chris Anderson on Friday confirmed the extension, which was first reported by CBSSports.com. Anderson said terms were not immediately available for release.
Pelini is 57-24 in six seasons, but there was speculation about his job status at the end of last season as the Cornhuskers' streak of no conference championships stretched to 14 years.
Minutes after Nebraska lost its last regular-season game, to Iowa, Pelini defended his record and said, ''If they want to fire me, go ahead.'' Athletic director Shawn Eichorst issued a statement of support for Pelini the next day, but as recently as Tuesday had refused to answer questions about a contract extension.
