Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini to Miami? Over Tom Osborne's dead body!

There has been chatter that Nebraska head football coach Bo Pelini was on the radar of Miami as its new football coach. Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne has a little thing to say about that, however. Like "no."

"Athletic director Tom Osborne told the Lincoln Journal Star that he has not given Pelini permission to speak to Miami about the job, and Pelini says he didn’t seek permission to interview for another job. Pelini wouldn’t otherwise comment publicly on the report."

Did anybody really think Osborne was going to let Miami talk to any Nebraska football coach after all those Osborne-coached Husker losses to the Hurricanes in the Orange Bowl? Didn't think so. Don't expect a former Republican congressman to let his coach run off to a college run by a former Clinton cabinet member (Miami president Donna Shalala) either.
