Shawn Eichorst Issues Statement Supporting Bo Pelini

Eric Francis

Nebraska Athletic Director has issued a statement supporting Bo Pelini:

"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."

So Bo Pelini will continue to be the head coach of the Nebraska football program.

You could read into it that "until their full seasons are complete" is some sort of code for Pelini's re-evaulation after the games are over today, but I have to believe that's nothing more than chain yanking.
