Bo Pelini will be Youngstown State's next HC, according to the Vindicator.
Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman confirmed the news that had been previously rumored. As you know, Pelini was fired from Nebraska a few weeks ago. He is obviously still on Nebraska's payroll, so money is likely not a major factor in his decision making.

Nebraska has fired head coach Bo Pelini, effective immediately.

He had been with the school since 2008. Nebraska finished the season 9-3 and are bowl eligible, but Pelini will not be a part of it. The Cornhuskers did lose two of their last three and barely beat Iowa in the final game. Nebraska is a very favorable head coaching job and have recently produced talent like Ndamukong Suh, Prince Amukamara, Lavonte David, Ameer Abdullah and Randy Gregory. Pelini has a defensive background and could land a coordinator position this offseason. The real question is, what will happen to Faux Pelini?

Nebraska HC Bo Pelini said that his program "is on a good track" despite recent struggles.

The Cornhuskers were methodically dismantled by Melvin Gordon on Saturday, and November tends to be a time when people start questioning Bo Pelini's future. So we, like Nebraska, are on a good track here. The coach said, "A lot of football programs across the country would die to have won the amount of football games that we've won." He did admit that his players felt embarrassed after the loss and that portions of the game "felt like deja vu," referencing past failures in big games. Pelini said he believed that his program was received better nationally than it was locally.

It was announced on Monday that the winner of Saturday's Nebraska-Wisconsin game would be awarded the "Freedom Trophy."

The source link is worth clicking here, if only to see the gem of the trophy. One of these teams will be awarded what appears to be a bronzed stadium with a giant bronze American flag unfurled grandly overhead, reminding us that freedom is more enjoyable when it is heavy and made of bronze. If anything's going to heal up Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah's sprained MCL, it's freedom.

Nebraska coach Bo Pelini proposes eliminating signing day.

To slow down the recruiting process, Pelini suggests allowing players to sign binding offers whenever they please. If that happened, high schoolers could sign as freshman and sophomores and the offers would be guaranteed. "If somebody has offered a kid, let him sign, it's over," Pelini said. "That will stop some of the things that are happening -- people just throwing out offers, some of them with really no intention of taking a kid." He added: "Make [the offer] mean something. People will be like, 'Whoa, I've got to take this kid now.' It will slow things down for the kids, for the institutions. There will be less mistakes."

Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said at his weekly press conference that he's not "coaching to save my job."

"I don't concern myself with that," Pelini said when asked whether he deserves more time as coach. "I'm not coaching to save my job or anything else. At the end of the day, I want to be here, and I want to be here if they want me to be here. If they don't, I'll go on my way. Until that day happens, I'll do everything in my power to make this the best football team I can." Pelini, who has a 57-23 record at Nebraska, can earn his sixth straight nine-win season by defeating Iowa on Friday. "I like the direction of this program," Pelini said. "I like where we are. I think the future is bright."
