Former Nebraska Football Coach Leaves LSU After One Year


A person familiar with the situation says former Nebraska head coach and now LSU defensive coordinator Bo Pelini is leaving the program after one difficult season in which the Tigers allowed six opponents to gain more than 500 yards.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Monday because the terms of Pelini’s departure are not final and have not been announced.

Pelini signed a four-year contract worth more than $9 million and would still be owed nearly $7 million under his original contract. Add in his buyout from Nebraska after he was fired in 2014 and Pelini is set to still be owed somewhere around $11-million.
