It sounds like Bo Pelini will not be unemployed for long.
Sources tell FootballScoop that Bo Pelini plans to accept the head coaching position at Youngstown State http://t.co/gkayvPt9KK— FootballScoop Staff (@FootballScoop) December 10, 2014
Pelini, 46, had a record of 67-27 in his seven seasons as head coach of the Huskers. He is due $7.65 million dollars from Nebraska after Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst dismissed him on November 30th, two days after the Iowa victory.
Last season, Youngstown State finished the year 7-5 in the Missouri Valley Football Conference. They lost their final three games to Illinois State, Indiana State and North Dakota State.
Pelini will be replacing Eric Wolford, who YSU announced would not come back on November 25th, Wolford was 31-26 overall in five seasons at Youngstown State, with a 18-22 MVFC record.
Ironcially, the President of Youngstown State is Jim Tressel, the former YSU and Ohio State Head Coach who many folks rumored around to become the next Head Coach at Nebraska before Mike Riley was hired. So, instead of Tressel replacing Bo Pelini, he'l be part of hiring Pelini instead.

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
