12:32 p.m., Friday: Those worried about Nebraska coach Bo Pelini having any interest in the vacancy at the University of Miami can rest easy after both Pelini and NU Athletic Director Tom Osborne released statements Friday.
From Pelini: “The reports that I am preparing to interview at the University of Miami are false. I will not have any additional comment on this matter or any other rumors.”
From Osborne: “Bo has done an excellent job of leading our football program at Nebraska over the past three years. We’re looking forward to having Bo and our coaching staff lead our team in the Holiday Bowl and as we transition into the Big Ten next year.”
Back to business as usual as the Huskers return to practice Friday afternoon. Preparations will begin for the Holiday Bowl game vs. Washington on Dec. 30.
