Former University of Nebraska – Omaha football coach Pat Behrns was among twelve people taken into custody in Council Bluffs on Tuesday. Bluffs Police Sgt. Bob Christensen says the department and the Southwest Iowa Task Force combined efforts in conducting a prostitution sting operation at a hotel in Pottawattamie County. He says both males and females were targeted in this investigation.
63-year-old Behrns was a University of Nebraska – Omaha football coach for 17 years. He left UNO in 2011 when the football program was terminated. Authorities say Behrns posted bond and was released Tuesday evening.
