You may remember last week when FootballScoop.com reported that former Nebraska Cornhuskers Head Coach Bo Pelini was going to accept the job at Youngstown State University, his hometown school. Well, everyone told them they were wrong...
Just spoke w/ Bo Pelini. Denied reports of being offered or accepting Youngstown State job. "It's all a complete fabrication of the truth."— Thayer Evans (@ThayerEvansSI) December 10, 2014
So then we wrote it off to FootballScoop being donks and all that.
But all of a sudden.. maybe they were right?
Just got confirmation from someone at YSU: Pelini is the guy. Said the decision revolved around two things: family and lifestyle.— Joe Scalzo (@JoeScalzo1) December 16, 2014
Well.. what's Thayer Evans say?
Former Nebraska coach Bo Pelini will be Youngstown State's new head coach per a source.— Thayer Evans (@ThayerEvansSI) December 16, 2014
EVANS ON BOARD YO.
This is a good location for Bo. He's getting paid from Nebraska, and he's in his Hometown where his family is around him and coaching. Hopefully he will thrive here.
UPDATE: It's officially official.
