LINCOLN, Neb.--Following Friday's 38-17 loss to Iowa and the speculation regarding Head Coach Bo Pelini's job status, Nebraska Director of Athletics Shawn Eichorst released a statement of support for the coach Saturday morning.
The following is Eichorst's statement.
"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."
