Bo Pelini Issues Statement Thanking AD Support, Fans, Apologizing to Officials and Media

David McGee

Bo Pelini issued a statement thanking Shawn Eichorst, that he's honored to representing the university and fans, apologizing for his boorish behavior. Pelini finished by assuring everyone that they're recruiting and coaching and doing nice things.

Earlier this evening, Bo Pelini issued the following statement through the University of Nebraska athletic department:

"I want to thank our administration and Shawn Eichorst in particular, for his continued and full support that he has given me and our football program since his arrival on campus. I am honored to represent this university and its great fans and I'm proud to lead this program into the future.

I apologize for reacting emotionally yesterday and for showing frustration both with the game officials and the media. I fully understand and respect their difficult jobs, and I regret any and all actions or words which may have shed a negative light on our program and university. Accountability is a core belief throughout our program, and as the head coach, I must set and maintain a high standard.

Our football staff is hitting recruiting full throttle and looking forward to the upcoming bowl game. We are committed to working with Shawn and our entire department staff to continue to build this program and bring championships back to Nebraska."

So, mostly blah blah blah blah written by PR person, blah blah blah.

Did Pelini need to do this? Yes.

At least he called his boss by his first name. Isn't that a nice relationship?
