Tom Osborne Announces His Retirement As Nebraska's Athletic Director

Tom Osborne announced his retirement as Nebraska's Athletic Director, beginning by telling a joke about aging. Appropriate that he's 75 years old and has spent so many years providing leadership to student athletes as both a coach and an administrator. Osborne will continue in the position until January 1st, 2013. The decision for a successor will be made by UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman after an open search process. Osborne will stick around for six months after the position is filled to assist in any transition. This should not be a sad day for Nebraskans. Tom Osborne has served us incredibly well. CN would like to wish him the best.
