Nebraska head football coach Bo Pelini declined to discuss a report that he’s received permission from NU to speak with Miami about the school’s head coaching vacancy.
The Miami Herald reported last night that Miami athletic director Kirby Hocutt plans to speak with Pelini. NU athletic director Tom Osborne was surprised to hear the report telling the Lincoln Journal Star that if Pelini got permission to talk to Miami, it wasn’t from him.
According to the Miami Herald article, the other thre high on Miami’s list include Texas Tech’s Tommy Tuberville and Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen and UCONN’s Randy Edsall. Mullen’s name has surfaced as a possible replacement for Urban Meyer at Florida.
